(PRWEB) September 08, 2017
A drop in the corporate tax rate and an extension of the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) program beyond its scheduled 2019 sunset are just some of the tax reform proposals that could have a significant effect on investments in low-income communities. These prospects will be a key point of discussion at the Novogradac 2017 New Markets Tax Credit Fall Conference at the Loews Chicago Hotel in Chicago, Oct. 19-20. Panel topics will include the Treasury Department year in review and 2018 outlook, marketing a development to a community development entity (CDE), getting a qualified active low-income community business (QALICB) to closing and more.
“The Novogradac NMTC conference offers a great blend of policy and program insights, along with practical discussions of real-world examples and industry best practices,” said Brad Elphick, CPA, conference chairman and partner in Novogradac & Company LLP’s metro Atlanta office. “The strength of the NMTC community is collaboration, so we’ve also scheduled several networking opportunities to help attendees forge new partnerships and to reconnect with old ones.”
All conference attendees are invited to attend the Women in Tax Credits breakfast, an interactive roundtable meeting with women executives who are thriving professionals in the tax credit community. Another highlight of the conference will be the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits’ presentation of the 2017 Community Development QLICIs of the Year Awards. The qualified low-income community investments (QLICIs) to be honored are ones that exhibit a well-executed vision and measurable community impact in economically under-served communities.
