Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC)
Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna was recently awarded $25,000 in Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC). This is a wonderful opportunity for individuals and businesses to give to Habitat while saving money on taxes. The program is a from the State of Maryland’s Department of Housing and Community Development.
The purpose of the program is to increase nonprofit-donor partnership. We will leverage these tax credits into a minimum of $50,000 of donations. Each donor over $500 may claim the tax credit on their Maryland income tax for one half of their donation. The credit is a dollar-for-dollar reduction of state taxes. On top of that are the charitable deductions already available from the state and federal governments. The bottom line is that the program makes partnering with us easier while providing more tax benefits for our donors, and more beneficial to us. We can accept monthly or lump sum donations toward a total yearly CITC contribution.
In 2016, the CITC donations will support the Repair Program which helps low-income seniors, families and veterans make critical home repairs that enhance the safety, energy efficiency, and accessibility of their homes. Donations pay for materials and the licensed contractors we must use for electric, plumbing, and HVAC. No staff costs are included.
