Baker Tilly's podcast series specifically for professionals in the multifamily housing industry

The act of combining (or “twinning”) tax credits, such as the low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) and historic tax credit (HTC), can offer developers an opportunity to bridge a funding gap and improve the rates of return on transactions for investors.

This episode explains the benefits of a twinned structure in an affordable housing development and the key differences in pricing, structures, debt execution and cash flow to help you decide if twinning LIHTC and HTC is the right move for your next transaction.
