Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC)


The Women’s Housing Coalition (WHC) has received Community Investment Tax Credits. Any individual or business that pays taxes to the state of Maryland can donate $500 or more to WHC and earn tax credits equal to 50% of the value of the money, goods or real property contribution to reduce their tax liability.

The tax credits must be used against Maryland state taxes owed for the year in which the contribution was made and may not be used retroactively for taxes from a prior year. These tax credits are in addition to the deductions on State taxes as a result of the charitable contribution and do not affect your ability to take a Federal charitable deduction. 

For example, you donate $2,000 to the Women’s Housing Coalition. From that donation, $1,000 is credited from your Maryland state taxes. Plus, you may also get federal and state deductions for the charitable contribution. The numbers may look like this *:
