Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Resources

The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program was created by the United States Congress in 1986 to promote the development of affordable housing for low income individuals and families. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations for the Tax Credit program are found under Section 42 of the Code of 1986, as amended.

As an allocating agency for the Tax Credit program in Illinois, the Illinois Housing Development Authority (Authority) is required to publish a Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP) that details how it intends to award the tax credits. Pursuant to Section 42 of the Code, the QAP describes criteria the Authority considers in evaluating Projects and development teams applying for an Allocation of Tax Credits.

Income Averaging

As is well known throughout the affordable housing industry, Congress recently created a new occupancy set-aside option known as “income averaging.” Instead of electing the 20/50 or 40/60 minimum set-aside, an owner may elect an income averaging set-aside. This allows a property to serve households up to 80% AMI, as long as at least 40% of the total units are rent and income restricted and the average income limit for all tax credit units in the project is at or below 60% AMI.

The Authority understands its stakeholders are excited to take advantage of this new option to better serve the needs of those seeking affordable housing. Given the nuances of this new set-aside option, the Authority is carefully reviewing applicable law and industry guidance with the goal of developing a policy around income averaging that will ensure the Authority can continue to administer the low-income housing tax credit (“LIHTC”) program in the most effective and efficient way possible.

As the Authority continues its analysis of this new set-aside option, the Authority wanted to provide some information about the parameters currently being considered. The information in this bulletin is not intended to be conclusive or exhaustive. The Authority’s final policy may or may not include the elements discussed below. In addition, if determined to be applicable, the Authority will take steps to amend the 2018-2019 Qualified Allocation Plan.

Please note, developments will be ineligible to select income averaging if: (i) the development received 9% LIHTC award from the Authority in 2018 (or earlier); or (ii) the development receives a 9% award from the Authority in 2019; or (iii) the development already has a recorded Extended Use Agreement (including resyndications); or (iv) the development already filed a Form 8609.

Developments seeking 4% LIHTC’s that desire to elect income averaging will be considered by the Authority on a case-by-case basis. Tax exempt bond developments will still need to meet all applicable bond-related compliance requirements.

Additionally, the Authority is in the process of updating the Affordable Rental Unit Survey (ARUS) to reflect all the allowable income levels under income averaging. Please click the link below for additional information.

Affordable Rental Unit Survey (ARUS)

Anticipated mandatory requirements for any development requesting to elect income averaging:

  • All units must be designated low income; the development may not contain unrestricted or market rate residential units.
  • Designated income/rent levels may only be set at 10% increments beginning at 20% of AMI. Allowable income/rent designation levels are 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, or 80% of AMI. The Authority reserves the right to limit the number of AMI designations per property.

Anticipated supplemental application items for any development requesting to elect income averaging:

  • Written acknowledgement from the LIHTC equity investor that income averaging is compatible with requirements of other public and private funding sources.
  • Written acknowledgement from the property manager regarding the compliance implications and commitment to provide annual income averaging training to on-site property management.
  • Payment of an additional application fee to re-underwrite the development, if applicable.
  • Payment of an additional compliance fee to reflect increased monitoring requirements for developments that elect income averaging.
  • Updated common application.
  • Updated market study demonstrating sufficient market demand for each income bracket proposed.

The Authority has authorization from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development to conduct subsidy layering reviews (SLRs) for newly constructed and/or rehabilitated multifamily projects that: 1) have received an allocation of Low Income Housing Tax Credits from the Authority, 2) received an allocation of HOME and/or NHTF financed by IHDA, and 3) will receive project-based voucher (PBV) rental assistance. Questions may be directed to slr@ihda.org.
