What are New Market Tax Credits?

The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC), passed by Congress with bipartisan support in December 2000, is the most significant federal subsidy for economic development of depressed areas in thirty-five years. Designed to stimulate the flow of investment capital into underserved areas, it is intended to bring about the direct investment of at least $30 billion into these areas over a twenty-year period. Ideally, it is likely to eventually leverage two to four times the additional investment amount.
