Maximizing Low-Income Housing Tax Credits – Application and Projections

Our knowledge and experience could help you at the beginning of your next Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) project and application.  Tax Credits are our specialty and we know that a successful project begins long before the LIHTC award.  There are many important considerations in the projection and application process.  Answers to these questions are key to getting your LIHTC project off to a great start.


  • What are the key components of the Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP)?
    • Have there been changes to key components of the QAP?
    • What are the key dates and requirements?
    • How do QAPs differ from state to state?


  • Do you understand the application process and scoring?
    • How can you maximize your scoring?
    • Are there Project challenges that you need help in identifying solutions for?
    • Should you elect income-averaging for the Project?


  • Are your project’s credit pricing, lending terms and project sourcing optimized?
    • Did you capture all benefits to the investor when preparing project projections to maximize investor IRR? 
    • What are the best syndication, lending, and investment sources for your project?
    • How will development and operating loss deficits be allocated?


  • Are there other tax credit and development incentives available in combination with LIHTC for the Project?
    • Would Historic Tax Credit (HTC) in combination with LIHTC be an option?
    • How do LIHTC developments in Opportunity Zones (OZ) benefit?
    • Could State Tax Credit Programs in combination with Federal LIHTC fill in gaps for the Project?


  • Are there legislative changes that could benefit LIHTC developers?
    • What programs or legislation are in the works?
    • How would they impact LIHTC developers and the Project?
