Department of Treasury Set to Help Development of Rural Areas Through Funding of Companies

The state is one of the few areas within the company that has required government attention over time and is now starting to see the benefit of the efforts of the people of the state, as the United States Department of Treasury has donated a large sum of money towards the state and the companies that have their operations within the state. As part of this, CEI Capital Management, a company based in the state of Maine, has been given over $80 million in the treasurer’s efforts to divulge into new markets to offer help where help is needed (Maine to benefit from $80 million in tax credits for U.S. rural development).

Filing info and tax credits

The ETIC and the ACTC are both refundable tax credits. There are a wide variety of tax credits available to taxpayers and business as a way of offsetting some of their liability. The most common for individual taxpayers are the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and the Lifetime Learning Credit. For businesses, commonly used tax credits are the General Business Credit, New Markets Tax Credit, and the Work Opportunity Credit.

New Markets Equals Growth for Maine

The New Market Tax Credit Program works to aid in “building up” of our forgotten communities. The goal is to attract private investors that will invest in these forgotten communities, abandoned commercial properties, and outdated manufacturing buildings and revive them. By investing in these communities, the investors create viable investments that truly give back to the community through services and jobs, not the mention a working, successful presence that feeds community pride. The result is a reinvigorated local economy.
