Incentives for Commercial Property Owners
Local Economic Revitalization Tax Abatement (LERTA) Program
Rehabilitation Investment Tax Credit (RITC)
RITCs were used as incentives for the renovation of the Palace Theatre, The Train Station and the Stark Building within Greensburg’s historic district. Greensburg’s downtown area was designated a historic district in 1995.
Certain expenses incurred in connection with rehabilitating an old building are eligible for a tax credit. RITCs are available to owners and certain long term leases of income-producing properties. There are two rates: 20% for a historic building and 10% for a non-historic building, with different qualifying criteria for each rate. Contact the GCDC for more information about the program: 724-689-0040 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
