What are New Markets Tax Credits?

NMTC is a program created by federal law that provides tax credits to investors that are willing to make qualified equity investments in certain targeted areas, specifically low-income communities. NMTC allows an investor to receive tax credits against earned taxable income over a seven-year period.
