Virginia Department of Historic Resources

The Virginia Department of Historic Resources is the State Historic Preservation Office. Applications for both federal and state tax credits are submitted to the department.

DHR staff members review the federal applications and forward them to the National Park Service with a recommendation regarding approval. Final decisions about the federal credits are made by the Park Service. Decisions about state credits are made by the department.

For information about both the state and federal programs, click on the link above and follow the links for Incentives and Grants, then Rehabilitation Tax Credits. State application forms can be downloaded from the website in PDF format, or requested by e-mail in Word.

Information on other state preservation programs is also available through the Department’s website.

The National Park Service reviews projects for designation as “certified rehabilitations.”

It is the IRS, however, that administers the use of the credit that can be claimed when a project is so designated. Check this link for a list of frequently asked questions about the credit.
