Future Developments

Form 8610 and its instructions, such as legislation enacted
after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/Form8610.
What’s New
The population component of the state housing credit ceiling
for 2018 is the greater of $2.70 times the state’s population
or $3,105,000.
Purpose of Form
Housing credit agencies use Form 8610 to transmit Forms
8609, Low-Income Housing Credit Allocation and
Certification, and Schedules A (Form 8610) to the IRS. Form
8610 is also used to report the dollar amount of housing
credits allocated during the calendar year. The housing
credit agency must not allocate more credits than it is
authorized to allocate during the calendar year.
Generally, the state housing credit ceiling for 2018 for any
state is the sum of:
1. The larger of $3,105,000 or $2.70 multiplied by the
state’s population;
2. The amount of state housing credit ceiling returned in
2018 from allocations made prior to 2018;
3. The amount, if any, allocated to the state from the
National Pool; plus
4. The unused state housing credit ceiling, if any, for 2017.
See Regulations section 1.42-14 for more information.
Who Must File
Any housing credit agency authorized to make an allocation
of the credit (even if no credit is actually allocated) on a Form
8609 or carryover allocation reported on a Schedule A (Form
8610) to an owner of a qualified low-income building during
the calendar year must complete and file Form 8610. In
states with multiple housing credit agencies (including states
with constitutional home rule cities), the agencies must
coordinate and file one Form 8610.
If a housing credit agency has granted any project relief for
carryover allocations discussed in section 6 of Rev. Proc.
2014-49, 2014-37 I.R.B. 535, the agency must attach to
Form 8610 a copy of the Schedule A (Form 8610) for the
projects for which it has approved relief. These attached
copies of Schedule A (Form 8610) must have the box
checked that indicates the housing credit agency granted
carryover allocation relief under Rev. Proc. 2014-49. The
housing credit agency should only include Schedules A
(Form 8610) for projects receiving approval of the carryover
allocation relief since the agency last filed Form 8610. The
information from these particular Schedules A (Form 8610)
isn’t included on any line in Part I or Part II of Form 8610.
If a housing credit agency has granted any project relief to
toll the beginning of the first year of the credit period as
discussed in section 10 of Rev. Proc. 2014-49, the agency
must attach to the Form 8610 filed for the calendar year in
which the President declared the area a major disaster area
a statement containing the following information: (1) the
name, address, and TIN of the building owner; (2) the
address of the building; (3) the building identification number
(BIN); and (4) the agency-approved first year of the credit
period. The statement should be labeled “Relief Under
Section 10 of Rev. Proc. 2014-49.” The statement should be
signed by an agency authorized official and a copy of the
statement should be provided to the building owner.
When To File
File the 2018 Form 8610 with accompanying Forms 8609
