The use of tax credits has grown into a key driver for the successful completion and development of real estate investment projects, community revitalization programs and renewable energy projects. Farella tax attorneys have successfully closed a wide array of complex tax-credit transactions for developers, investors, community development entities and project sponsors nationwide, including transactions that have combined historic rehabilitation tax credits with new markets tax credits, renewable energy tax credits and state tax credits. In the aggregate, these transactions have involved development expenditures in excess of one billion dollars. 

Farella tax attorneys are tapped regularly to assist in the role of co-counsel with law firms that do not have the specific experience structuring tax credit transactions. The experience of our tax credit attorneys, combined with our strong connections with other professionals and funding sources, makes Farella uniquely qualified to handle the complex structuring issues that are abundant in tax credit transactions.
