I. Abstract

    Section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code requires that the Secretary 
of the Interior certify to the Secretary of the Treasury upon 
application by owners of historic properties for Federal tax benefits: 
(a) The historic character of the property, and (b) that the 
rehabilitation work is consistent with that historic character. The NPS 
administers the program with the Internal Revenue Service. The NPS uses 
the Historic Preservation Certification Application to evaluate the 
condition and historic significance of buildings undergoing 
rehabilitation for continued use, and to evaluate whether the 
rehabilitation work meets the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for 
Rehabilitation. The Department of the Interior regulation 36 CFR part 
67 contains a requirement for completion of an application form. The 
information required on the application form is needed to allow the 
authorized officer to determine if the applicant is qualified to obtain 
historic preservation certifications from the Secretary of the 
Interior. These certifications are necessary in order for an applicant 
to receive substantial Federal tax incentives authorized by Section 47 
of the Internal Revenue Code. These incentives include 20% Federal 
income tax credit for the rehabilitation of historic buildings and an 
income tax deduction for the donation of easements on historic 
properties. The Internal Revenue Code also provides 10% Federal income 
tax credit for the rehabilitation of non-historic buildings built 
before 1936, and owners of non-historic buildings in historic districts 
must also use the application to obtain a certification from the 
Secretary of the Interior that their building does not contribute to 
the significance of the historic district before they claim this lesser 
tax credit for rehabilitation.
