If you own a historic home or building in Los Angeles and are considering window replacement, you’ve come to the right place. At Fusion, we are very familiar with the opportunities available when working with historic buildings.
If your home is a contributing structure in a designated Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) or a historic cultural monument, The City of Los Angeles can help you rehabilitate, restore, and maintain your building with a financial incentive. (See a list of all HPOZ zones below). Thanks to The Mills Act Historical Property Contract Program, historical building homeowners are able to receive a potential property tax reduction, allowing them to put that extra money towards the renovations and repairs that the property needs. The Mills Act has been assisting qualified historic property owners with tax relief since 1996, benefiting nearly 900 properties in the City of Los Angeles.
Owners of income-producing properties that are listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places may take advantage of a 20% Federal tax credit. The credit is 20% of the amount spent on qualifying historic rehab expenditures.
