Congress Passes Extension for New Markets Tax Credits Program, Increases Allocation by $1.5 Billion

When some people hear the phrase New Markets Tax Credits, they might think of an obscure tax incentive. However, other people, those who deal with the program or have been directly impacted by it, think of something completely different. These individuals think of a hydroelectric generating facility found on the Kentucky River, a new health and science building at a small college in Berea that offers students a debt-free education, a brand new state-of-the-art YMCA in West Louisville that offers increased community services to society’s most vulnerable, or a Winchester facility that manufactures bio-degradable plastic items while employing those desperately in need.
