How you can help!

The Quaboag Valley Community Development Corporation (QVCDC), a 501(c)(3)

Non profit, was awarded Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC). Individuals, corporations, and non-profit organizations can invest in these credits and receive a state tax credit as well as a federal tax deduction. The CITC provides a 50% state tax credit for donations to qualified CDCs. It’s designed to leverage private contributions in order to support a broad array of community development efforts as determined by the local community. Contact us about making a donation to the QVCDC.

How does it work?

The Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) provides a 50% tax credit against Commonwealth of Massachusetts tax liability. The CITC program is a refundable tax credit. Donors will invest in a CDC’s Community Investment Plan. Investors must contribute at least $1,000 to be eligible. The contribution must be in the form of a cash donation. The credits awarded are equal to 50% of the “qualified investment.” In addition to receiving the 50% state tax credit, donors may also take a federal tax deduction for the balance of their donation. The credit is REFUNDABLE if the taxpayer does not have a tax liability. 2020 Donations must be received by December 31, 2020.
