Affordable Housing and Tax Credit Finance


Working with Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) can present complex business, tax and legal issues for investors, syndicators, developers and lenders, which require experienced counsel. LIHTC projects typically involve multiple layers of debt and equity, including other state and federal tax credit programs, state and federal grants and subordinate loans, and operating subsidies.

Spencer Fane has experience with LIHTC programs, Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credits, state tax credits, HUD 202 and 811 capital advances, special needs housing (senior, veterans, formerly homeless, rehab), tax-exempt bond financing, HUD financing, HOME grants and loans, tax-increment financing, property tax abatement or exemption, compliance issues, and restructuring equity and debt.
