INSTRUCTIONS FOR REQUESTING REISSUANCE OF MORTGAGE CREDIT
CERTIFICATES (MCC)
CRITERIA FOR REISSUANCE OF MORTGAGE CREDIT CERTIFICATE
The MCC may be reissued at the sole discretion of the Iowa Finance Authority if the
Mortgagor refinances; however, the credit may not be taken beyond the term of the original
mortgage. A certificate is considered validly reissued only if all the following conditions are
met:
1) The Mortgage being refinanced has a valid MCC at the time of closing on the financing
for which the reissuance is requested.
2) The Mortgagor continues to occupy the property as a principal residence.
3) IFA receives a complete application for reissuance within 45 days of closing on the
financing for which the reissuance is requested.
4) The MCC must be requested by the lending institution offering the refinance and that
entity is responsible for fulfilling all IRS reporting and recordkeeping obligations.
5) The reissued certificate will be, in effect, a continuation of the existing MCC and there
shall be no increase in the amount of credit, nor an extension of the term beyond the
maturity date of the original mortgage.
