IRS Eliminates Need for Third-Party Signature When Filing Form 8609

Thursday, February 26, 2004 - 1:45AM

To facilitate electronic filing of low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) returns, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in Treasury Decision 9112 eliminated the requirement to include a third-party signature from an authorized state or local housing credit agency official when filing Form 8609. Today, the IRS released updated versions of Form 8609 and Schedule A (an attachment to Form 8609) to reflect this change. State housing agencies will use the revised Form 8609 when making final credit allocations. Click here for the revised forms.
