4) Giving $500 or more? Claim Community Investment Tax Credits (CITCs) to get the most out of your donation:
HPRP has again been awarded Community Investment Tax Credits (CITCs) from the State of Maryland. This means that donors may be eligible to receive 50% of their donation BACK through a Maryland state tax credit in addition to any standard federal and state tax deduction for the donation. The CITC Program supports HPRP by offering a Maryland tax credit incentive to individuals and Maryland-based businesses making a qualifying donation of $500 or more. Monetary and stock contributions are eligible; however donations of service or labor are not. These tax credits will be given on a first-come, first-served basis until the entirety of the award has been distributed.
Who is Eligible for CITC?
Individuals: Any individual taxpayer who is a Maryland resident.
Businesses: Any entity that conducts a trade or business in the State and is subject to State income tax on individuals or corporations, the public service company franchise tax, or the insurance premiums tax such as corporations, public utility companies, insurance companies, financial institutions, S corporations, partnerships, sole proprietorships and limited liability corporations.
How the CITC Program Works
Your donation must be a gift of $500 or more.
Donations are made directly to HPRP and donors are simply required to complete a short form to be submitted for the CITC program.
Eligible individuals or business entities that make donations of $500 or more will receive a tax credit equal to 50% of the value of the donation. These tax credits may be claimed in addition to state and federal deductions for charitable contributions. See the graphic below for an example.
A donor must use tax credits against taxes owed for the year in which the contribution is made. Any excess credits may be carried over. Credits may not be used retroactively.
The Department of Housing and Community Development will provide certification of your donation. You must keep this documentation from DHCD for your tax records. When filing your Maryland Income Tax Return, you will need to include this documentation with your return.
