New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC) - The current tax bill has omitted this program entirely. Urge Congress to keep program that boosts Montana economy

November 7, 2017View for printing

If you've ever sought medical care at the Bullhook Community Health Center in Havre, seen a film at the Cinemark Theater in Helena, toured the historic Sears Building in Uptown Butte, shopped for groceries at Town & Country Foods in Bozeman, attended a swim meet at Mission Valley Aquatics in Polson, stayed at the Home2 Suites in Billings or picked up food from the new Missoula Food Bank, you have seen the direct impact of New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC), a federal program that incentivizes investment and economic growth in low-income urban and rural communities.

New Markets Tax Credits are a powerful tool that allows us to redirect federal tax dollars back into our Montana communities -- generating jobs, financing businesses and community facilities and boosting local economies. This repeal is a serious misstep that would be felt by communities across our state.
