Housing Credit and Bond Financing Conference Returns to New Orleans, Oct. 4-5

“There’s no question, 2018 has been a dynamic year for the affordable housing finance community,” - Rebecca Arthur, MAI

Although the 2017 tax code overhaul made no direct changes to the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC), several enacted provisions have indirectly affected the LIHTC. Changes, such as a reduction in the corporate tax rate, the repeal of the alternative minimum tax, the creation of a base erosion and anti-abuse tax and limitations on business interest expense deductions, are factors that affordable housing finance participants continue to consider as they make investment plans for 2018 and beyond. After tax reform, income averaging and a temporary boost in LIHTC allocations were enacted. These topics and more will spark discussion at the Novogradac 2018 Credit and Bond Financing for Affordable Housing Conference in New Orleans at the Roosevelt New Orleans, Oct. 4-5.

“There’s no question, 2018 has been a dynamic year for the affordable housing finance community,” said Rebecca Arthur, MAI, conference co-chairwoman and partner in Novogradac & Company LLP’s metro Kansas City, Mo., and Dallas offices. “The new tax law and subsequent legislation created new conditions for affordable housing finance participants to navigate.”

“The Novogradac conference brings together the industry’s leading experts under one roof, so it’s a great opportunity to ask questions about income averaging, the lower corporate tax rate and any other issues that can play a factor in the success of affordable housing transactions.” said Thomas Stagg, CPA, conference co-chairman and partner in Novogradac & Company LLP’s metro Seattle office. “We’re very much looking forward to welcoming attendees to New Orleans.”

Attendees can choose from three separate panel tracks on Year 15, bonds and compliance for an in-depth look at each topic. Conference details and the complete conference agenda can be found at

In addition, two pre-conference workshops are available, subject to separate registration and fees. The Tax-Exempt Bond Basics and LIHTC 202: Year 15 Overview workshops will be Oct. 3.

Sponsors include Enterprise & Bellwether Enterprise, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, Arnall Golden Gregory LLP, CREA LLC, CBRE Affordable Housing, Dentons, PNC Bank, KeyBank, Hunt Capital Partners, Barnes & Thornburg LLP, PGIM Real Estate Finance and R4 Capital.
