Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC)

Helping you find success in the world of LIHTCs

Financing housing using low-income housing tax credits (LIHTC) has proven to be one of the most effective financing tools for creating quality, affordable housing in communities. However, LIHTC is a financing tool full of rules — rules made by the Internal Revenue Service and housing finance agencies.

Adding to the complexity of a low-income housing tax credit are the demands of investors, lenders, and community leaders. Negotiating through this maze is critical to ensure your success — no matter what role you play in the real estate deal.
