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.

By making a CITC donation you invest in Allston Brighton CDC’s Community Investment Plan i.e. our business plan, providing flexible working capital that can be used to seed new programs, fill funding gaps and leverage other resources. If you do not have sufficient tax liability, the credit is refundable, whereby the Commonwealth will issue a check for the balance of the credit to you directly. The maximum donation each year of the program is $2 million per tax paying entity. The minimum donation each year is $1,000.

Donor Benefits:

  • Considerable Tax Savings
  • Individuals and Corporations can take advantage of tax credit
  • Excess tax credit is refundable
