With the upcoming allocation round of the new markets tax credit (NMTC) looming, now is a great time for qualified active low-income community business (QALICBs) to know the important roles in an NMTC transaction as well as potential ways to leverage the sources in their capital stack. In this week’s Tax Credit Tuesday podcast, the second of a three-part NMTC series, Michael Novogradac, CPA, and Novogradac partner Amanda Read, CPA, identify and define those important roles, including the Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, community development entities (CDEs), accountants, lawyers and more. Later, they define and discuss how QALICBs can leverage different sources of financing such as “soft money,” capital campaign dollars and bank debt to maximize the tax credit financing that they can generate from a CDE.
