Virginia Administrative Code
Title 13. Housing
Agency 10. Virginia Housing Development Authority
Chapter 160. Rules and Regulations for Administration of Rent Reduction Tax Credits

13VAC10-160-70. Administration of allocation of tax credits.

Except for increases in allocation as provided in 13VAC10-160-120, tax credits shall not be allocated by the authority after January 1, 2000. Allocations of tax credits made by the authority prior to June 30, 1996, for units occupied by elderly and disabled tenants or prior to January 1, 2000, for units occupied by previously homeless tenants shall remain in effect, subject to the provisions of these rules and regulations.

The amount of tax credits claimed by an owner in any taxable year for tax credit units shall not exceed the amount of tax credits allocated to such owner for such tax credit units. The executive director may require that owners to whom tax credits have been allocated shall submit from time to time or at such specified times as he shall require, written confirmation and documentation as to the status of each tax credit unit and its compliance with the application and these rules and regulations. If on the basis of such written confirmation and documentation and other available information the executive director determines that any tax credit unit does not or will not qualify or will not continue to qualify for such tax credits, then the executive director may terminate or reduce the allocation of such tax credits. Without limiting the foregoing, the owner of any tax credit units shall lease the tax credit units to eligible tenants at reduced rents such that the aggregate of such rent reductions shall be no less than the aggregate of the rent reductions set forth in the application for tax credits for such units. In the event that the owner shall fail to so lease such tax credit units, the authority may, upon its determination that the owner is unable or unwilling to utilize fully its allocation of tax credits for such tax credit units, terminate or reduce such allocation, as it shall deem appropriate.

Commencing with fiscal year 2000-2001, the executive director may terminate or reduce any allocations of tax credits as he shall determine to be necessary or appropriate to satisfy the requirement in the state code that the total amount of tax credits approved by the authority in any fiscal year after June 30, 2000, not exceed $50,000 and to maximize the utilization and geographic distribution of the tax credits.

The authority shall have the right to inspect the tax credit units and related property and improvements from time to time, and the tax credit units and related property and improvements shall be in a state of repair and condition satisfactory to the authority. The authority may require the owner to make necessary repairs or improvements, in a manner acceptable to the authority, as a condition for receiving an allocation of tax credits or for qualifying for certification to the Department of Taxation as described hereinbelow.

The executive director may establish such deadlines for the owner of units to qualify for the tax credits and to comply with the application and these rules and regulations as he shall deem necessary or desirable to allow the authority sufficient time, in the event of a reduction or termination of such owner's allocation, to allocate such tax credits to other eligible owners pursuant to 13VAC10-160-120.

Any material changes to the condition, use or occupancy of the tax credit unit or in any other representations, facts or information, as contained or proposed in the application, occurring subsequent to the submission of the application for the tax credits therefor shall be subject to the prior written approval of the executive director. As a condition to any such approval, the executive director may, as necessary to comply with these rules and regulations and the state code, reduce the amount of tax credits allocated or impose additional terms and conditions with respect thereto. If such changes are made without the prior written approval of the executive director, he may terminate or reduce the allocation of such tax credits or impose additional terms and conditions with respect thereto.

In the event that any allocation of tax credits is terminated or reduced by the executive director under this section, he may allocate such tax credits (in the amount of such termination or reduction) to eligible owners (other than the owners whose tax credit allocation was so terminated or reduced) in the manner described in 13VAC10-160-120 or in such other manner as he shall determine consistent with the requirements of the state code.

If an owner shall transfer any of the tax credit units to a transferee which is eligible for such tax credits under the state code and these rules and regulations, such transferee shall thereupon be entitled to the allocation of tax credits for such tax credit units and shall, for the purposes of these rules and regulations, be thereafter deemed the owner for such tax credits.
