Community Investment Tax Credits Are Almost Sold Out for 2017!!!

The Island Housing Trust has been awarded $150,000 in state Community Investment Tax Credits again for 2017. We are very grateful to all of our donors who have participated in this tremendous program in the past and we encourage donors to consider taking advantage of it again this year!

The tax credits are available on a first come first served basis and if you’d like to read more about the Community Investment Tax Credit program please click on the link.  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.
