San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Novogradac & Company LLP, a national certified public accounting and consulting firm, will once again host its annual Tax Credit Developers Conference at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach in Miami, Fla. Taking place from Jan. 10-11, 2013, the conference will bring together active, influential low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) practitioners to explore new and innovative ways that the LIHTC and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs can serve their interests. The Novogradac Tax Credit Developers Conference will provide attendees with the opportunity to stay informed about current strategies and legislation, including expert insight on the latest legal and tax issues, best practices and the public policy of the LIHTC and HUD programs. An emphasis on facilitating networking opportunities means that attendees will also be able to collectively identify ways to handle challenges stemming from an uncertain economic climate and connect with like-minded professionals who are also working toward the continued production of affordable housing.
“Collective discussion about potential challenges and innovations is extremely valuable for practitioners wanting to move forward in the LIHTC industry. With potentially major legislative changes coming, this conference is an especially timely opportunity,” says Susan Wilson, conference chairwoman and a partner in Novogradac & Company’s Austin, Texas office. “This gathering provides practitioners with an outstanding opportunity to collectively assess the state of the industry and markets in order to position projects for 2013 and beyond.”
Attendees will also be among the first to recognize the accomplishments of those being honored at the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits Developments of Distinction awards. The awards, presented at a luncheon on Thursday, Jan. 10, recognize excellence
and honor outstanding achievement in the development of tax credit projects that had a meaningful and major impact on their community, demonstrated financial innovation or overcame significant obstacles in their development.
Taking a developer-centric look at the affordable housing market, expert panelists will examine the debt and equity markets, Year 15 issues, how to effectively utilize HUD programs and combining LIHTCs with renewable energy tax credits. Other panel discussions will focus on emerging issues and trends, such as how affordable housing is likely to be affected by the current administration, current property level compliance issues and market analysis, and case studies from Novogradac & Company’s Government Consulting and Valuation Advisory (GoVal) group. Rounding out Thursday’s sessions will be a beachside networking reception.
Attendees are also invited to arrive a day early to participate in LIHTC 101: The Basics, a pre-conference workshop held on Wednesday, Jan. 9 from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., that will provide an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals of the LIHTC program. Separate registration is required and additional fees apply.
