The Federal Historic Tax Credit is threatened by tax reform efforts. Ask your members of Congress to take a stand for preservation!

While we respect the need for tax reform, it must not come at the expense of a proven program that generates more money for the Treasury than it costs, while also creating local jobs and promoting strong communities.

For your convenience, we’ve prepared a sample message below for you to send to your lawmakers to request their support for the federal historic tax credit. Please consider customizing the letter to reflect why this credit matters to you to maximize its impact.

Thank you!


  • Your Senators
  • Your Representative
