About the Minnesota Historic Tax Credit

Minnesota's Historic Tax Credit Structure Rehabilitation Tax Credit (MN Statute 290.0681), passed into law in 2010, has been a successful economic development tool for revitalizing distressed, vacant, and underutilized historic properties throughout the state. The credit provides a refundable income tax credit equal to 20% of qualified rehabilitation expenses made to buildings listed in the National Register of Historic Places and used for income-producing purposes (including office, industrial, retail, hospitality, and rental residential).

4,800 housing units have been created or retained through use of Federal and state Historic Tax Credits since 2011 – an average of 600 units per year!
