Take our LIHTC survey: COVID-19’s impact on tax credit housing

While recent conditions have been anything but normal, we are reminded over and over again about the importance of affordable housing production and the potentially widening affordability gap our country will continue to face. As we deal with new challenges and work together to find solutions, CohnReznick invites affordable housing clients and industry colleagues to participate in a short survey, the results of which we will share in our September Affordable Housing Views and News. The survey takes 1-2 minutes.

Treatment of carried interest: Long-awaited proposed regulations released

Section 1061 was enacted as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) in December 2017. The TCJA introduced the concept of an “applicable partnership interest” (API), which captures the carried interest, or profits interest, typically held by the general partner. The TCJA provides that holders of a profits interest will only be eligible for the preferential long-term capital gains rate with respect to gains realized on dispositions of capital assets, sold after Dec. 31, 2017, held for more than three years. With many unanswered questions from the original code section, the recently issued proposed regulations provide much-needed insight into how Section 1061 is to be interpreted and how Treasury may look at these arrangements in the future. Read our overview of highlights to consider.
