2023 Tax Credits Are Available!
New Mexico State Affordable Housing Tax Credits
Santa Fe Habitat for Humanity has been awarded charitable state tax credits equal to 50% of the value of donations for affordable housing projects approved by the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority. With New Mexico State Tax Credits, you will receive 50% of your donation back in the form of a tax credit from the State of New Mexico. This tax credit can be used with personal and corporate income taxes, sales tax, gross receipts tax and/or other state tax debt for 2023.
Here’s How It Works
Santa Fe Habitat for Humanity requires a minimum donation of $500 or more to be eligible for the 2023 tax credit program. You will receive a tax credit voucher equal to 50% of your total donation(s) for the year. This tax credit will directly reduce your New Mexico tax debt. You may also choose to carry over the tax credits for up to 5 years or transfer them (one time only) to someone else. In addition to the New Mexico tax credits, you may be able to claim a charitable deduction on your federal tax return for the full contribution amount.
