Real Estate Investment Incentives

Tax credits are an effective incentive to mitigate some of the costs associated with real estate investment and development activities. The federal tax credits outlined here can be layered with a variety of state and local incentives. Each of these incentives involves complex financing and investment structures that require specialized care for successful execution. Our real estate credits and incentives specialists have extensive experience with all facets of real estate tax credits and incentives.

Low Income Housing Tax Credit

New Markets Tax Credits
The New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) infuses investment dollars into low-income communities with poor access to capital.

These credits can be used by real estate developers to close the funding gap on commercial, mixed use or community developments, or by operating business to acquire, rehabilitate or expand facilities and operations.
