Baker Tilly's podcast series specifically for professionals in the multifamily housing industry.
On this episode, hosts Don Bernards and Garrick Gibson interview Wade Norris, a partner at the law firm Norris George & Ostrow PLLC, to get his perspective as a leader in the tax and bond finance field. Wade focuses on the 501(c)(3) bond space along with essential function bonds, what they are, how he has seen them in the workforce housing space and what’s unique about these bonds.
To address the workforce housing need, projects in some states were put into public ownership, which generated a real estate tax exemption for extra cash flow to make units more affordable. Wade talks about the risks of these tools and gives advice on how future multifamily housing owners can start their journey.
