What Participants Will Learn

  • How New Markets Tax Credits work in a real estate development deal.
  • How to identify qualifying projects and locations.
  • How to Identify investors for your deal and how exactly they benefit.
  • How banks select and underwrite NMTC projects.
  • Which projects are best suited to the NMTC program.
  • What qualifies as a community development entity.
  • How projects are selected.
  • How an NMTC deal differs from a standard debt-financed transaction.
  • What assets can be financed and how the mix of uses and property types is important.
  • The details of a project case study.
  • How sequestration will affect NMTCs.

The New Markets Tax Credit provides substantial benefits to taxpayers who invest in NMTC projects. This can apply to different types of projects, including mixed-use, housing, office, retail and health care projects.

Taxpayers can receive the credit against their federal income tax bill in exchange for an equity investment in a project located in a qualifying income area. The equity investment is typically used by community development entities to fill the gap in financing in projects and businesses within target zones. Both nonprofit and for-profit developers can use this equity investment to provide financing that is otherwise not available from traditional sources of equity.
