Helping Clients Secure Tax-Advantaged Financing
At Sulloway & Hollis, our attorneys are well-versed in various state and federal tax-advantaged financing programs. Our Real Estate, Development and Environmental Practice Group assists clients to secure favorable financing for a wide range of projects. We develop creative strategies for enhancing the project’s success while ensuring that the interests of clients and investors are well-protected.
Our team works with clients on both a local and national scale. We offer guidance on state and federal programs such as:
- Rehabilitation tax credits: Our attorneys offer guidance to institutional and private investors who wish to secure rehabilitation tax credits for qualifying historic structures. We currently represent an institutional investor involved in large-scale rehabilitation projects across the country. Our attorneys have been instrumental in securing both state and federal tax credits.
- Low-income housing tax credit financing: We can help developers of qualified rental projects apply for and maintain favorable tax treatment through the IRS’s Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program. Our attorneys can prepare the documentation necessary for clients’ success in the competitive application process, which is handled through the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority.
- Tax-exempt bonds: We help education and health care institutions across the state secure tax-exempt financing for eligible projects through bonds issued by the New Hampshire Health and Education Facilities Authority. We also serve as special conflict counsel to the New Hampshire Health and Education Facilities Authority.
- Industrial development and commercial bonding: We also help clients secure tax-exempt financing for qualifying commercial and industrial projects — including acquiring, renovating and constructing facilities and purchasing land — through the New Hampshire Business Finance Authority. We help clients secure this financing for qualifying projects.
Many of these programs involve rigorous application processes. Applying careful attention to detail and utilizing our excellent relationships with many funding organizations, our attorneys help clients prepare the thorough documentation necessary for securing tax-advantaged financing.
