The Ohio New Markets Tax Credit Program helps to finance business investments in low-income communities by providing investors with state tax credits in exchange for delivering below-market-rate investment options to Ohio businesses. Investors receive a 39% tax credit spread over seven years if they make an investment in a qualified low-income community business.
Community Development Entities (CDEs) apply to the program for allocation authority, and work with investors to make qualified low-income community investments. The program helps to spark revitalization in Ohio's communities with this attractive tax credit.
Information on the program, including application materials, reporting needs, and a map and listing of funded projects to date can be found to the left under Program Information.
