DALLAS, May 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- National residential mortgage lender PrimeLending, a PlainsCapital Company, was recently recognized by the South Carolina State Housing Finance & Development Authority (SC State Housing) as its 2017 MCC Lending Partner of the Year1.
SC State Housing partners with local lenders, such as PrimeLending, to provide the SC Mortgage Tax Credit Program (MCC Program). This program, also known as the Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC), provides a federal income tax credit2 to qualified homebuyers of up to $2,000 per calendar year for every year they occupy the home as their primary residence.
This program helps South Carolina homebuyers make their mortgages more affordable and helps them save thousands of dollars each year that would have otherwise been paid in taxes.
"It is a privilege to be associated with outstanding assistance programs like the SC Mortgage Tax Credit Program," said Karen Blakeslee, Eastern Division Executive Vice President for PrimeLending. "Helping families establish roots as homeowners is something we approach with great responsibility, and working with homebuyers throughout South Carolina is an especially rewarding experience for us."
