The capital construction fund program is a program created by the Merchant Marine Act of 1970 to help rejuvenate the American Merchant Marine. The assistance provided is not through payment of appropriated funds, but rather allows the fund holder to defer a portion of tax monies that would otherwise be paid to the U.S. Government during the tax year. The extension of tax deferral privileges encourages the accomplishment of the program objective by allowing the fund holder to accumulate and use otherwise taxable earnings for the purposes of acquiring, constructing or reconstructing vessels built and documented in the United States and operated in the United States foreign, Great Lakes or noncontiguous domestic trade and in the fisheries.
