SETH Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) Program
The Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) Program provides eligible homebuyers up to $2,000 each year in additional federal income tax credits. As a holder of the MCC, you will receive this credit each year as you pay off your mortgage loan.
Here is an example of one year of savings with the MCC Program:
|The buyer will have paid approximately $5,000 in interest that year.
|Tax credit provided by the MCC Program||40%|
|MCC savings for the homeowner||$2,000|
Actual savings experienced by a homeowner will depend upon the mortgage interest they pay on the home loan.
