Community Investment Tax Credits

Rebuilding Together Baltimore has a new opportunity for charitable giving. We have been allocated tax credits to make available to our donors through Maryland’s Community Investment Tax Credits (CITC) Program. This program gives you an opportunity to make a charitable contribution AND reduce your Maryland tax burden. The CITC application process was competitive and we are thrilled to have been chosen as one of the select nonprofits to participate.

Through the CITC Program, you can get a Maryland State tax credit equal to 50% of your donation. That’s right, it’s a credit that reduces the taxes you pay. PLUS, you can still take the federal and state charitable deductions allowable.* Tax credits are available to both individuals and businesses.

And here is even more information on the Maryland Comptroller’s website!



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. In some cases, a portion of the tax credits can be carried over to future years.


Individuals: A resident of Maryland (as defined by Maryland tax law)

Businesses: Any entity that conducts a trade or business in the State and is subject to: the State income tax on individuals or corporations: the public service company franchise tax or the insurance premiums tax (eg. corporations, public utility companies, insurance companies, financial institutions, partnerships, sole proprietorships and limited liability companies).
