Act Now to Protect the Missouri Historic Tax Credit

From the National Trust for Historic Preservation

The Missouri Historic Tax Credit is under review. Governor Nixon’s Tax Credit Review Commission (TCRC) has begun its review of Missouri’s tax credit programs. In addition to the full TCRC meeting which was held September 8, 2010 to debrief the Commission members on all of the tax credit programs, there are several smaller regional meetings to be scheduled throughout the State, at which time public testimony will be taken.

The Missouri State Historic Tax Credit program is under scrutiny by the commission. It is critically important at each of these public hearings for commission members to understand the great benefit of the historic tax credit to the state of Missouri!

So how can you help? The National Trust for Historic Preservation is urging you to attend the upcoming regional TCRC meetings to voice that more cuts to the existing Historic Tax Credit Program will only reduce state revenues and kill more jobs, and that surrounding states are increasing their historic tax credit caps to create jobs.
