IRS Releases Updated LIHTC Audit Technique Guide
The IRS recently released its new audit technique guide (ATG) for IRC Section 42, Low-Income Housing Credit. The purpose of the ATG is to help IRS examiners audit owners of LIHTC projects. It’s organized in the order an examiner might address issues during an examination, starting with an overview of the credit and how to complete a precontact analysis through calculating an adjustment to the credit and writing the audit report. Two related topics, auditing partners and completing the Examination of Income, are also addressed.
