Community Investment Tax Credits

The Community Investment Tax Credit Program (CITC) offers State tax credits to Maryland businesses and individuals that donate to nonprofit organizations working to revitalize communities statewide.

Businesses and individuals who make donations of money, goods, or real property worth $500 or more may earn valuable State tax credits equal to 50% of the value of the money, goods, or real property contribution. These tax credits are in addition to the deductions on both Federal and State taxes as a result of the charitable contribution. 

Donors are asked to complete a Certification of Contribution Form. Please submit your completed Certification of Contribution Form and documentation of the value of your contribution to: 

Main Street Middletown, C/O Becky Axilbund, 19 W Main Street, Middletown, MD 21769

For more information on this special tax credit incentive please contact Main Street Manager, Becky Axilbund, (301) 371-6171 ext. 111, baxilbund@ci.middletown.md.us

Businesses and individuals must use the tax credits against taxes owed for the year in which the contribution was made, they may not be used retroactively for taxes from a prior year. An​y  business or individual contemplating making a donation is encouraged to consult with their accountant or tax professional for information about their specific tax benefits.


The Department of Housing and Economic Development began this program because of the many benefits:

  • Donors reduce their Maryland State tax liability
  • Local nonprofits achieve their projects and goals
  • Benefits the community at large
