Tax Credits for the
Rehabilitation of Abandoned
Textile Mill Sites

After the collapse of South Carolina’s once robust textile industry, the state was littered with closed and abandoned textile mills. In 2004, the South Carolina Textile Communities Revitalization Act (the “Act”) was enacted with the purpose of incentivizing the renovation and rehabilitation of these sites, which were causing community disruption, hindered investment, the lowering of property values, and increasing crime and safety concerns.

The Act provides for a tax credit of up to twenty-five percent (25%) of certain rehabilitation expenses for taxpayers renovating qualified textile mills sites. This resource guide is intended to examine the eligibility requirements, procedure, qualified expenses, and administration of the Act. The Act and applicable guidance are complex, and there are often unanswered questions based on the taxpayer’s specific circumstances and attributes of the property, which require a legal analysis. It is strongly advised that the taxpayer engage competent counsel for advice and assistance early and throughout the process. An experienced attorney’s services will also be valuable in helping determine strategies to maximize the credit under the law and available tax guidance.
