Community Investment Tax Credits

IHT has received its new allotment of $200,000 in tax credits for 2020.  Tax credits are available on a first come first served basis by December 31st. Donors realize a 50% Massachusetts tax credit for their cash equivalent gifts (via check, wire or on-line payment ) of $1,000 or more, in addition to a federal tax deduction.  Tax credits in excess of state tax liability are refundable in cash. If you would like to read more about the Community Investment Tax Credit Program or to review CITC Tax Savings Examples  please click on the links. 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.  Contact Christopher Anderson at christopheranderson@ihtmv.org for more information.
