Then they look at the chances of a change in the 50% private activity bond test, as well as the chance for passage of bills that include permanency for the new markets tax credit, expansion and extension of renewable energy tax incentives and the extension or phasing out of the opportunity zones incentive. They conclude with a discussion of how advocates can encourage expansion of community development incentives.
