Published by Michael J. Novogradac on May 21, 2024, 11:12 a.m.

Year 7 marks the end of the compliance period for a new markets tax credit (NMTC) transaction, marking seven years since an investor made its qualified equity investment into a community development entity (CDE). In this week’s episode of Tax Credit Tuesday, Michael Novogradac, CPA, and Greg Clements, CPA, discuss the most-common type of Year 7 NMTC exit, the put-call structure. After defining the structure, Novogradac and Clements outline the roles and viewpoints of the investors, qualified active low-income community businesses (QALICBs) and CDEs during a Year 7 exit. Later, Clements gives his perspective on the value of planning, timing and communication between the parties.
