Tax Credit Investing

Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) have been directly responsible for the construction or rehabilitation of more than 100,000 new affordable rental units annually. This popular federal program, created by the Tax Reform Act of 1986, makes federal tax credits available to owners of affordable rental properties and leverages approximately $13 billion per year in private equity capital and has been the driving force behind much of the new affordable housing being produced today.

Corporations, insurance companies and banks have the opportunity to benefit from LIHTC investments. Investments are made through limited partnerships or limited liability companies. Investors can earn a solid economic return on their capital. This is where the Cinnaire team can step in and make a difference.

LIHTC funds managed by Cinnaire help investors minimize the risk of investing. Cinnaire provides multiple services including underwriting, investment management, asset management and compliance.

Benefits to Investors

Investors have the opportunity to claim a federal tax credit that is earned over a 15-year period, but is claimed over an accelerated 10-year timeframe, beginning when the property is placed in service and occupied.

Property owners also benefit from tax losses generated by the properties, which provide for additional tax benefits, further reducing an investor’s federal tax liability. Additional credits, such as federal historic and energy credits may also be available on LIHTC properties, which can enhance investment returns. Bank investors receive CRA consideration under the CRA Investment Test for LIHTC investments.

Nationally, of all real estate classes, this program has minimal loss related to foreclosure.
