An opportunity you won't want to miss: 

If you have ever wondered about the historic tax credit programs in Ohio, the Heritage Centre Association and Heritage Ohio invite you to an informal tax credit coffee at the Mount Vernon Grand Hotel, April 11, 2016 at 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Space is limited, please RSVP by April 8th to manager@visitdowntownmountvernon.com or 740-393-1481.

Knox County has many historical districts and properties that contribute to them. It may interest you that anyone owning a structure (commercial, industrial, residential, etc.) over 50 years old is eligible for historic tax credits. The most accessible historic tax credit is federal.  It is available to everyone with an eligible property. The state preservation tax credit is awarded by application, is necessarily competitive, and is typically limited to the best and larger projects.

This is your rare opportunity to have all the right people in one room. Come and chat with Frank Quinn, Nathaniel Kaelin, Mariangela Pfister, Barb Powers and Lisa Bromwell, who manage these programs.  Learn how the 20% Federal Historic tax credit and the 25% Ohio historic preservation tax credit work from those with the most experience. Through our relationship with Woodward Development, there will be an additional presentation by Don Longwell on these operations and types of projects to which these programs best apply.  Ask questions and explore your options. 

The Heritage Centre Association would like to thank the Grand Hotel, the Knox County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Knox Chamber of Commerce, and Heritage Ohio for making this event possible. Revitalization is important to the health of our community. We are honored to work with so many to bring this event here. Our goal is to make this process less intimidating and more accessible to those who can use it. 

The mission of the Heritage Centre Association is to create and enhance the economic, historic, and social development of the Central Business District and Downtown Mount Vernon. We look forward to meeting you at this event.
