Novogradac 2017 Credit and Bond Financing for Affordable Housing Conference in New Orleans, Oct. 5-6

The shape and scope of tax reform could have significant consequences for the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC), tax-exempt bonds and the future of affordable housing as a whole. A preview of the affordable housing financing landscape for 2018 will be a key point of discussion at the Novogradac 2017 Credit and Bond Financing for Affordable Housing Conference at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, Oct. 5-6.

“As we’ve seen with the LIHTC equity market disruption earlier this year, the mere prospect of tax reform has had an impact on affordable housing financing,” said Rebecca Arthur, MAI, conference co-chairwoman and partner in Novogradac & Company LLP’s Kansas City, Mo., and metro Dallas offices. “It’s crucial for industry participants to stay well informed and to prepare for challenges and opportunities as we close out the year and head into 2018.”

“One of the advantages of attending a Novogradac conference is hearing the latest affordable housing insights from some of the country’s leading industry experts,” said Thomas Stagg, CPA, conference co-chairman and partner in Novogradac & Company LLP’s Seattle office. “Attendees will hear firsthand what they might expect in the year to come and how they can plan ahead to be in the best position for success.”

In addition to discussing how affordable housing equity could be affected by tax reform, knowledgeable professionals will hold roundtable sessions on deal negotiation, debt and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs. Concurrent tracks will be available on compliance, Year 15 issues and tax-exempt bonds.
