Timely and accurate financial reporting is critical to tax-credit financed housing. It helps ensure that Partnerships are in compliance with requirements of its lenders, investors and taxing authorities (federal and state). It also helps guarantee that investors receive the credits that have been purchased. By working together, we can meet the mutual reporting requirements to the benefit of all parties involved.
The lower-tier partnerships are all pass-through entities to NEF’s investors, many of which have international tax provision reporting requirements. As such, NEF needs each lower-tier partnership to include Schedules K-2 and K-3 with all relevant information for the lower-tier partnership in its tax return for the year-ended 12/31/21.
NEF anticipates that Parts I – IV and Parts IX – X will be completed for all lower-tier partnerships. For any lower-tier partnership that itself has foreign business activity, we would also expect that Parts V – VIII would be completed.View More
