The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently invited public comments on Form 8611: Recapture of Low-Income Housing Credit. Site owners use Form 8611 to recapture part of the tax credits claimed in previous years if the property is disposed of or if it fails to meet certain requirements over a 15-year compliance period and a bond is not posted.
