Tax Credits & Tax-Advantaged Investment Products Consulting

Welcome to the tax credits information program provided by Rainmaker Underwriting.  Rainmaker Underwriting provides consulting services for commercial real tax credits, NMTC, new, markets, historical, low-income, housing, LIHTC, enterprise, zone, go estate developers seeking to utilize a specific tax credit financing program or tax-advantaged financing program component to provide additional investment capital for commercial real estate programs and projects.

What's the difference between a tax credit and a tax-advantaged product?

A tax credit is a direct offset for the taxpayer's federal income tax liability.  A tax-advantaged product (like the "GO Zone Bonus Depreciation Expense Allowance") is an offset applied to the taxpayer's passive income (to the extent the taxpayer has passive income).

The most common tax credits are:

Energy - buildings, appliances and vehicles (multiple statutes).

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC - Section 42).

New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC - Section 45).

The most common use for these credits and tax-advantaged products are in development financing for commercial real estate projects - this leads to a focus on the NMTC and "GO Zones" authorized by Congress.  Rainmaker provides consulting assistance to developers seeking to participate in these programs, to wit:

Due diligence services (market studies, financial feasibility studies, capital funding plans, etc.); and

Negotiations assistance (Allocatee round-ups, drafting of qualified allocation plans, investment/investor due diligence, etc.)

At the end of it all is additional funding that may be made available that does NOT necessarily require a massive dilution of the common equity ownership of the resulting enterprise.  This feature makes tax-advantaged investment planning a must for today's savvy commercial real estate developer or sponsor.
