Affordable Housing 2013: Tax and Regulatory Reform in a Changing Economy

August 21 -22, 2013
Atlanta, GA

With the Obama Administration in power for the next four years, calls for substantive tax reform are growing louder - from both Congress and from American citizens. Now that the economy is showing signs of life and healthcare reform is a matter of law, the focus has turned to simplifying and improving the tax code.

How will this impact tax -incentivized real estate? Where is the financing of affordable housing projects headed in the future? These and other key issues will be explored in this major conference of affordable housing industry leaders.

Join CohnReznick and an outstanding group of investors, lenders, developers, and affordable industry thought leaders as we explore the impact of tax and regulatory reform on the future of the affordable housing industry.
