What is the Multifamily 开发者计划, and what is its purpose?
The Multifamily 开发者计划 was developed to provide tax-exempt bond financing, property tax exemptions (PILOTs) and green infrastructure loans to increase the supply of sustainable affordable housing. The program is also intended to provide the City and 大发游戏官方网 with local control over affordable housing development.
What is the benefit of receiving PILOTs, and/or Bonds and Tax Credits through 大发游戏官方网?
The basic reason affordable housing developers seek property tax relief from the City is to offset the loss in rental income created by offering below market leases to families in need. 大发游戏官方网’ PILOT product is structured to meet this basic need while generating a positive return on investment for taxpayers. The process for acquiring a property tax exemption from 大发游戏官方网 is designed to be fair, transparent and based on predictable market factors. Our primary goal is to stimulate affordable housing development while generating a reasonable market-based financial benefit for taxpayers.
What are the different bond options offered through the Multifamily 开发者计划?
不同的债券期权是 多户住房债券, Industrial Development Bonds, as well as 501 (c)(3)债券. 多户住房债券 allow the developer access to tax-exempt bonds to finance low-income multifamily and senior housing projects. A qualified developer can finance a project at a lower interest rate than available through conventional financing because the interest paid to bondholders is exempt from federal income tax. 工业发展债券; allow manufacturers to finance projects at a lower interest rate than conventional financing because the interest paid to the bondholders is exempt from federal income tax. 最后 501 (c)(3)债券 allows any nonprofit organization designated as a 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service the option to finance a project at a lower interest rate than available through conventional financing because the interest paid to bondholders is exempt from federal income tax.
What are the different Tax Credit options offered through the Multifamily 开发者计划?
低收入住房税收抵免(LIHTC)计划, is designed to subsidize either 30% or 70% of the costs in a low-income unit rental project. 30%的补贴, 通常被称为“自动4%税收抵免”,” is for new construction that includes additional subsidies or that can be used for the acquisition cost of existing buildings. 70%的补贴, 或者“9%的税收抵免”,” supports new construction that does not include any additional federal subsidies.
How long does the process take for receiving PILOTs, and/or Bonds and Tax Credits through 大发游戏官方网?
