Tax credit equity investments are a critical part of the financing plan for real estate development projects in challenging markets.  This CLE will focus on two popular tax credits:  Federal New Market Tax Credits and Federal and State Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits.

The federal New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Program encourages investment in operating businesses and real estate development projects located in low-income communities by allowing investors to receive a dollar-for-dollar reduction of their federal income tax liability in exchange for making equity investments in Community Development Entities who make loans to certain businesses located in these communities.  The CLE will explain the structure of a NMTC transaction, clarify the roles of the leverage lender, fund investor, CDEs, the qualified low income businesses and the sponsor, and review underwriting considerations in structuring NMTC transactions.

Both the federal and state Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit programs encourage preservation and adaptive reuse of certified historic buildings by allowing a dollar-for-dollar reduction of federal and state income tax and state excise tax liability.  This CLE will explain federal and state Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit programs, their similarities and differences, the structural requirements for a real estate transaction involving the use of such tax credits, and discuss the economic benefits that drive the use of these tax credits.

The program will conclude with a discussion concerning the preservation of the federal New Market Tax Credit program.
