Novogradac Hosts 2018 New Markets Tax Credit Spring Conference in Washington, D.C., June 7-8

The advent of the new opportunity zone initiative and a lower corporate tax rate under the tax reform legislation enacted in 2017 are two of the major legislative changes affecting the current new markets tax credit (NMTC) investing climate. How these changes and other factors will affect NMTC investment opportunities for the rest of 2018 and beyond will be discussed at the Novogradac 2018 New Markets Tax Credit Spring Conference at the Renaissance Washington, D.C., Downtown Hotel, June 7-8.

“The past few months have brought a flurry of changes for community development, including tax reform and the new opportunity zone incentive, not to mention expected changes to the administration of the Community Reinvestment Act,” said Gregory Clements, CPA, conference chairman and partner at Novogradac & Company LLP’s Dover, Ohio, office. “I look forward to meeting our conference attendees in Washington, where our expert panelists will shed light on what these changes mean for the community development industry.”

Panel discussion topics will include legislative insights from Washington, a mid-year investor review and insights to getting a qualified active low-income community business to closing. In addition, three pre-conference workshops will be offered June 6: NMTC 101: The Basics, Opportunity Zones and NMTC Compliance. Separate registration fees apply.
