Proposed Amendments to Qualified Allocation Plan, N.J.A.C. 5:80-33

Proposed amendments to the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency’s (Agency) Qualified Allocation Plan (QAP), codified at N.J.A.C. 5:80-33.1 et seq., will be published in the October 3, 2016 New Jersey Register at 48 NJR 1989. 

Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (Code) establishes a low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) that may be applied against the Federal income tax of persons or entities that have invested in certain buildings providing affordable housing.  As the housing credit agency for the State of New Jersey (State), the Agency allocates these credits to qualified taxpayers and thereafter monitors their compliance with Section 42 of the Code. The QAP sets forth the standards and procedures used to perform allocation and monitoring responsibilities and is the QAP for the State required by Section 42 of the Code. 

A public hearing on the proposed amendments has been scheduled to be held in the boardroom of the Agency at 637 South Clinton Avenue, Trenton, New Jersey on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.  Interested persons may appear and comment upon the proposed amendments; please call the Agency’s Division of Tax Credit Services at (609) 278-7629 if you wish to be included on the list of speakers.
