April 30, 2024: So You Want to Be a LIHTC Developer: Introduction to Eligible Basis

Published by Michael J. Novogradac on April 30, 2024, 5:52 a.m.

Eligible basis is a foundational factor to determine the maximum amount of low-income housing tax credits (LIHTCs) generated by an affordable housing property. In this week’s podcast, Michael Novogradac, CPA, and Mark Shelburne, a Novogradac housing policy consultant, discuss the fundamentals of eligible basis and the implications for properties ahead of a special six-part online course offered by Novogradac. They examine the purpose of that course series, then look at the role eligible basis plays in determining the tax credit allocation amount. After that, they look at the challenges in determining what parts of an affordable housing development are depreciable and what constitutes eligible basis, including examples of challenges faced. They wrap up by talking about opportunities to learn more about the nuances of eligible basis.
