New Market Tax Credits (NMTC)

NMTCs can help you generate jobs & economic growth

If you need financing for a project that creates jobs and generates economic growth in a low-income community, New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC) might be the answer. NMTC projects can include real estate investments, as well as operating businesses.

Treasury Announces $3.5 Billion in Awards for Economic Development and Community Revitalization

The NMTC, established by Congress in December 2000, permits individual and corporate taxpayers to receive a credit against federal income taxes for making equity investments in investment vehicles known as Community Development Entities (CDEs). The credit provided to the investor totals 39 percent of the cost of the investment and is claimed over a seven-year period. CDEs must apply to the Treasury Department’s Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI Fund) to compete for this allocation authority. The 99 organizations receiving awards were selected from a pool of 250 applicants that requested over $23.5 billion. They are headquartered in 27 different states and the District of Columbia; but have identified principal service areas that will cover nearly every state in the country, as well the District of Columbia.

Whether you are looking for funding from a community development entity (CDE) or you are a CDE applying for tax credits from the U.S. Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, our NMTC experts can provide you professional transactional consulting services. Once you secure the funds, we can provide financial statements and tax services.
