The Proper Framework
Affordable housing projects provide great opportunities to give back to the community by providing affordable housing to underprivileged areas throughout our state. At Wilkin & Guttenplan P.C., we recognize that receiving an allocation of credits requires complex compliance including cost certifications and tax filings.
We know that compliance with filing deadlines, record keeping and other specific requirements is critical. We deliver assistance to efficiently implement these requirements and ensure you receive the maximum credit allowed. Additionally, we work closely with your investors to enhance your relationship while supplying them with the annual financial information they require.
