On Monday, November 28, Erin Tobin from the Preservation League of New York State will conduct a workshop on the NYS Historic Homeowner Tax Credit Program. The workshop, which is sponsored by First Ward Neighbors, will take place at 6 p.m. at the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce, One North Front Street.
The tax credit program covers 20 percent of qualified rehabilitation costs for owner-occupied historic houses that are individually listed or part of a historic district listed in the State or National Register of Historic Places and located in a qualifying census tract.
The workshop is open to everyone. The National Register listed Hudson Historic District includes both sides of Warren Street and most of the south side of the city. To find out if your house is eligible, check the NYS Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation website.
