CITC Tax Credits Available!
Habitat Susquehanna has Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC) available!
Making a gift will help our Habitat families and YOU too!
Local giving is a win win investment for all of us, improving our neighborhoods and home values through home ownership.
How does this work? For donations of at least $500, you will receive a tax CREDIT of 50% of your gift. This is on top of the standard State and Federal tax deduction for a charitable donation. Where a deduction reduces your taxable income, thus saving you from paying taxes on that income, a Tax Credit directly reduces your taxes on a dollar-for-dollar basis. For example, if you donate $1,000, you get the “regular” deduction for a $1,000 donation. Then you can deduct $500 from the taxes you owe. If you don’t owe that much, you can spread it out over a few years. For most people, donating $1,000 only takes about $145 out of their pocket.
