The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will formally publish final regulations tomorrow regarding low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) qualified contract rules. The final regulations provide guidance concerning LIHTC property owners’ requests to LIHTC agencies to obtain a qualified contract for the acquisition of an LIHTC building. The rules will affect owners requesting a qualified contract, potential buyers and agencies responsible for the administration of the LIHTC program. The final regulations are scheduled to be officially published in the May 3 Federal Register; click here for a copy of the pre-publication version of the final qualified contract regulations. Additional information on qualified contracts and related issues can be found on the Year 15 Hot Topics web page.
