Here's from Henery's blogsite, with links at the end:
Saving Downtown: Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits
May 12, 2008 – 5:51 pm
Tuesday, May 20, 2008 / 9 a.m.-4:00 p.m.Catering by Design Conference Center, Columbus, Ohio
The federal 20 percent Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit for income-producing properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places is a major incentive for preserving and redeveloping historic buildings in Ohio. Owners, developers, architects, consultants, real estate professionals, tax attorneys, and accountants will all benefit from this full-day workshop presented by experienced Ohio Historic Preservation Office staff who advise applicants and make recommendations on Ohio projects.
Participants will receive a workbook and tax credit application materials. The morning session covers specifics of applying for and qualifying for Certification of Significance and Certification of Rehabilitation and includes a discussion of the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. A summary of the status of the Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credit ends the morning. The afternoon session covers how the Standards for Rehabilitation apply in a variety of common situations, including additions to historic buildings, retention of interior spaces and features, and what to do about windows. Among the questions to be answered are: Where should the addition go and how big can it be? Which spaces are significant and which can safely be altered? Up-to-the-minute guidance from the National Park Service on Interpreting and Applying the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation, issued early in 2008, provides a basis for the presentations.
The afternoon ends with “You are the reviewer” roundtable discussions of individual projects, illustrating how the Standards for Rehabilitation apply to real Ohio rehabilitation proposals.
