When Does the Taxpayer Become Entitled to the Credit? The Lead Paint Credit is a credit provided for covering or removing materials on residential premises in Massachusetts that have been established as containing dangerously high levels of lead. The credit for each residence is equal to the cost of the deleading expenses, or $1,500, whichever is less. In addition, a credit for interim controls — abatement measures taken pending complete deleading — is allowed for up to $500 per residence. This $500 amount applies toward the $1,500 limit. You are entitled to claim a Lead Paint Credit in the taxable year in which compliance is certified or in the year in which the payment for the deleading occurs, whichever is later. What Kinds of Properties Qualify for the Lead Paint Credit? What If I Am Taking the Lead Paint Credit and Another Credit On My Tax Return? Only “residential premises” qualify for the lead paint removal credit. Among the residential premises that qualify for the credit are: • single family homes; • individual units in an apartment building; • condominium units; or • individual units in multi-family homes. Which Taxpayers Are Qualified to Take the Credit? The credit may only be claimed by the owner of a residential premise. You must complete and enclose Schedule LP with your return. Failure to do so will result in this credit being disallowed on your tax return and an adjustment of your reported tax. Taxpayers must retain a copy of the Letter of Interim Control and/or Letter of Compliance. If you are taking another credit in addition to the Lead Paint Credit on your tax return, you must reduce the amount of tax reported in line 8 of Schedule LP (from Form 1, line 28 or Form 1-NR/PY, line 32 or Form 2, line 41) by any Limited Income Credit and/or Credit for Taxes Paid to Other Jurisdiction and any other credits you may be eligible for. These include, but are not limited to the Energy Credit, Economic Opportunity Area Credit, Septic Credit, Brownfields Credit, Low-Income Housing Credit, Historic Rehabilitation Credit, Film Incentive Credit, Medical Device Credit, Employer Wellness Program Credit, Farming and Fisheries Credit, Low-Income Housing Donation Credit, and Veterans Hire Credit. What If My Lead Paint Credit Originated from a Pass-Through Entity? Note: It is more advantageous to use the credit(s) that is going to expire first. If this credit originated from a pass-through entity, for example, a partnership, omit Parts 1 and 2 and begin completing this schedule at Part 3, line 5. What If My Lead Paint Credit Is Larger Than My Tax Liability? What Type of Work Is Covered by the Credit? A tax credit is only given for work done actually deleading the contaminated areas. Deleading refers to the removal or covering of paint, plaster or other materials that could be readily accessible to children under the age of six. Only costs that are incurred for legally required deleading qualify for the tax credit. What Are Interim Control Measures? Interim control measures are deleading activities undertaken to address urgent lead hazards pursuant to an emergency lead management plan pending the issuance of a Letter of Compliance. What Steps Must Be Taken to Claim the Credit? To claim the Lead Paint Credit, the following steps must be completed: • The residential unit must be inspected by an inspector (for purposes of full compliance) or by a risk assessor (for purposes of interim control) licensed by the Department of Public Health (Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program) who establishes the presence of dangerous levels of lead. • The contaminated areas must be deleaded or interim control measures instituted by a licensed deleader or authorized person. • The property must be reinspected by a licensed risk assessor who issues a Letter of Interim Control or by a licensed inspector who issues a Letter of Compliance. If the credit you derive from deleading a residential dwelling amounts to more than the amount you owe in income taxes for the year, the balance may be carried over into the next tax year. You may carry over an unused portion of the original credit for up to seven years.

Schedule LP is a Massachusetts Corporate Income Tax form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.
About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
