Capital Funding and Grants  

 

Federal Tax Credits for Financial Institutions
  Taxes

  The Act changes the federal tax code for financial institutions that enable nonprofit organizations to access bonds.  The Act allows financial institutions to deduct interest on funds they borrow to lend to a state agency, who in turn, provides those funds to nonprofit colleges, hospitals, and other organizations.  Previously, banks and financial institutions could not deduct interest on funds they borrow to lend money to any state agency that itself issues more than $10 million in bonds per year.  This change in the tax code will provide banks an incentive to allow capital to flow through agencies such as the Maryland Health and Higher Education Facilities Authority.
