2008 SETH MCC Program by xiuliliaofz


									2008 SETH MCC Program
What is an MCC?
The Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC)Program was
  authorized by Congress in the 1984 Tax Reform Act as a
  means of providing housing assistance to families of low
  and moderate income. It is an alternative to the bond
  (MRB) program.

The MCC is a tax credit that reduces the amount of federal
  income tax paid and provides additional available
  income to help qualify for a mortgage loan and assist
  with the new house payment.

The SETH MCC is available to buyers purchasing a
  residence in SETH’s jurisdictions and meeting required
  household income and purchase price limits. Buyers
  may be subject to paying a federal recapture tax if they
  do not remain during the recapture period (usually 9
A Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC)
provides a federal income tax credit to the
borrower for as long as they own and
occupy their home.

Tax credits are a powerful way of increasing
a family’s annual income.
       What does an MCC do?
The federal government allows each homeowner to claim
  an itemized income tax deduction for the amount of
  interest paid each year on the mortgage loan. A
  deduction reduces the amount of income that is taxed.
The MCC Program takes a portion of the mortgage interest
  paid and turns it into a tax credit. A tax credit is an
  amount returned to the buyer either by increasing the
  amount refunded in their tax return or decreasing the
  amount of taxes owed.
Because they are good for the life of the loan, an MCC may
  save a homeowner thousands of dollars as long as the
  certificate holder is living in the home. MCC’s may be
  used with any loan type EXCEPT an MRB loan.
