Community Investment Tax Credits Are Sold Out for 2016!!!
The Island Housing Trust was awarded $150,000 in state Community Investment Tax Credits for 2016 and they were very well received again this year. We are very grateful to all of our donors who participated in this tremendous program!
We are anticipating receiving tax credits again in 2017 so please watch for our announcement!
You can read more about the Community Investment Tax Credit program. In addition to a federal tax deduction, donors can realize a 50% Massachusetts tax credit for their gift of $1,000 or more. Tax credits in excess of state tax liability are refundable in cash. See CITC Tax Savings Examples. Massachusetts Department of Revenue regulation (830 CMR 62.6M.1) explains the calculations of community investment tax credits for qualified investments to the Island Housing Trust.
