Tax Credit Certificate Application

Please complete the tax credit certificate application thoroughly because any errors or omissions will cause a delay in the processing of the tax credit certificate claim. Depending on the status of the tax credit cap, the delay may result in a certificate with an effective date for a future tax year or a tax credit certificate not being issued.

Before completing the application, please refer to the tax credit certificate application guidance document and Rule C-1 regarding the submission of a claim for a tax credit certificate.

Notify the Division of Real Estate immediately if there are changes to either the information reported on the tax credit certificate application or the required documentation.

The tax credit cannot be claimed with the Department of Revenue prior to the tax year indicated on the certificate.
