IRS clarifies local approval and preference regarding LIHTC developments

Below, please find recent IRS Guidance on two issues relating to LIHTC developments complying with fair housing rules at the local level:
Revenue Ruling 2016-29 clarifies that under the Internal Revenue Code, state allocating agencies are not forced or encouraged to require local approval for LIHTC developments.

Notice 2016-77 reminds that LITHC developments located in a qualified census tract do not receive preference unless the project's development contributes to a concerted community revitalization plan. In this case, the plan's revitalization components must exist by the allocation date.
