Historic Tax Credit Workshops in Buffalo

BECHS TO HOST FREE WORKSHOPS ON NEW YORK STATE HISTORIC TAX CREDITS PRESENTED BY PRESERVATION BUFFALO NIAGARA

The Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society (BECHS) is hosting two FREE workshops given by Preservation Buffalo Niagara. The workshops, which are co-sponsored by the Historical Society, are on New York State Historic Tax Credits. The date of the workshops is Thursday, June 3, 2010. They will be held at the Historical Society, located at 25 Nottingham Court at Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo.

Both homeowners and business-owners may attend the free workshops to learn more about these specific New York State's tax credits-which are available to eligible property owners. The tax credits offer the chance for those rehabilitating eligible historic buildings to receive a credit covering a portion of the costs. Attendees will learn about the details, including eligibility and other requirements.

Featured will be speakers from the State Historic Preservation office-Daniel McEneny, Elizabeth Martin and Sloane Bullough. Additional speakers include Andrea Rebeck with Preservation Buffalo Niagara/National Trust; Michele Brozek-Knoll, City of Buffalo Senior Preservation Planner; and Steve Weiss, an attorney with Cannon, Heyman & Weiss.

The workshops are free; however, space is limited and pre-registration is required. Registrants may attend one or both sessions-to register, please call Preservation Buffalo Niagara at (716) 852-3300 or email your name, organization (if applicable), mailing address, phone number and email to info@preservationbuffaloniagara.org.
