Existing Mortgage Credit Certificate Holders

Community Investment Corporation’s Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) program allows first time home buyers to claim up to $2,000 of their annual mortgage interest as a federal tax credit – each year and every year they live in their homes. MCC’s can save homeowners $50,000+ over the life of their mortgage.

Program Requirements:

Frequently asked questions

You must have a tax liability to take the credit.  If you do not have a tax liability now, you may have one in the future.  In addition, if you owe no taxes, or the credit is greater than your tax liability, you may carry the tax credit forward for up to three years.

Files for borrowers who have received MCCs must be maintained and serviced for the life of the loan.  This includes reporting required by the IRS and the IDA to cancel non-compliant MCCs and reissue new MCCs upon refinancing.  Annual fees pay for the overhead and ongoing administration of these files.

If you have financial hardships which make it difficult to pay your fee, please call our office at 520-462-4MCC (4622) to make special arrangements.  If you do not receive a tax credit in a particular year because you had no tax liability, contact CIC to have your annual fee waived (must provide copy of tax return).

No, you must be a primary resident.  If you sell your home, rent your home, or if it becomes your secondary residence, you must notify us and we will cancel your certificate.

You may remain enrolled in the MCC program if you refinance on your home, but we must issue you a new certificate each time you refinance.

To get a new certificate issued after a refinance, there are two documents that will need to be completed.  One you will fill out, and the second your lender will need to fill out.  You are responsible for getting your lender to complete his/her portion and return it to us.  Both of these documents are linked below!

In addition to these two forms, we will need a copy of your promissory note and either your closing disclosure or settlement statement.  Please also send us your original MCC certificate, if you have it.

Mail all of the above documents to:

Or, you may upload these documents here.
