A credit for owners of residential low-income rental buildings satisfying specified conditions that can be taken over a 10-year credit period. The state housing credit agency (Agency) providing credits completes Part I of Form 8609 Low-Income Housing Credit Allocation and Certification (PDF), for each building and attaches a copy of each completed Form 8609 to the Form 8610, Annual Low-Income Housing Credit Agencies Report (PDF), which are then filed with the Low-Income Housing Credit (LIHC) unit at the Philadelphia campus.
