Proposed Bill Would Provide Five Year Carryback of LIHTC

Rules and regs Senator Jeff Bingaman introduced legislation on March 18, 2010, intended to stimulate investment in affordable housing. Bingaman introduced S. 3141 Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Recovery Act of 2010, which extends the period during which low-income housing tax credits can be carried back from one year to five years. All “carried back” proceeds must be invested in new housing developments, which ensures that this tax benefit flows only to investors who are committed to creating additional housing.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Legislative Update

Rules and regs Today, March 17, 2010, the IRS released Notice 2010-18 which provides guidance on three issues under Section 1602, the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Exchange Program, of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009.  The notice clarifies that exchange funds do not reduce building basis. The notice also clarifies that exchange funds, even though awarded in the form of grants, are not subject to federal taxation. Additionally, Notice 2010-18 provides guidance to state housing credit agencies as to how to reduce their annual low-income housing tax credit ceiling by the amount of credits exchanged for cash.

On March 10, 2010, the Senate passed the American Workers, State, and Business Relief Act of 2010, H.R. 4213, which had previously passed the House on December 9, 2009. This legislation will now be reviewed by a committee of senators and representatives in the hopes of resolving the differences between each version and then will go to the president for signature. If this bill is signed into law, it would extend the Section 1602 Exchange Program for one year.

On February 24, 2010, Representative Linda Sanchez of California introduced H.R. 4687 the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Exchange Expansion and Job Creation Act of 2010. This bill would expand the Section 1602 Exchange Program to include credits generated from tax-exempt bond financing or 4% credits.

FHA programs to be discussed include those for new construction, substantial rehabilitation, acquisition, and refinancing of apartments. For apartments that have a HUD subsidy, Linda and Joe will be able to offer guidance on ways to recapitalize those projects using HUD preservation programs so that owners can maximize the rents and value in conjunction with new FHA financing.
