The development of a building in a low-income community with both commercial and residential rental uses presents several issues when considering the use of the federal low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) and/or new markets tax credit (NMTC) incentives. Navigating the complexities of the LIHTC and NMTC programs requires careful consideration of the composition and intended use(s) of the building, as well as adherence to the specific requirements outlined by the LIHTC and NMTC incentives.

When a tenant of a low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC)-financed property is financially responsible for utilities (other than phone, cable or internet), a utility allowance for that utility must be established. That utility allowance must then be subtracted from the applicable rent limit to determine how much rent can be charged to a low-income tenant. Treasury Regulation (Treas. Reg.) Section 1.42-10 details the process and options for determining how the owner establishes the utility allowance.
