Local Incentive

Historical Tax Credits

Summary

The City of Belton has designated five Historic Districts throughout Belton, with a large percentage of the structures contributing to the historical designation in each district.  As a result of this designation, contributing income-producing buildings may be eligible for state and federal tax credit programs.

Through the Texas Historic Preservation Tax Credit Program, a credit worth 25 percent of the eligible rehabilitation costs for the project could be received with a minimum project investment of $5,000.  This program could be paired with the Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentive Program, providing an additional 20 percent tax credit for rehabilitation.  To determine if the building you are considering falls within a designated historical district, contact Judy Garrett.
