Restrictions of Low-Income Housing Must Be Considered in Valuing Kentucky Property
The Kentucky Board of Tax Appeals recently ruled that an appraiser valuing a LIHTC site must consider the rental restrictions placed on the site. The board considered the assessed value of a 20-unit site subject to the federal LIHTC income and rent restrictions. The county’s valuation administrator assessed the site at $1.34 million for the 2014 tax year. The Board of Assessment Appeals lowered this assessment to $1,040,000, and the valuation administrator assessed the complex at $1,040,000 for the 2015 tax year.
