Future Developments For the latest information about developments related to Form 8610 and its instructions, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/Form8610. What’s New The population component of the state housing credit ceiling for 2021 is the greater of $2.8125 times the state’s population or $3,245,625. For calendar year 2021, the state housing credit ceiling for California has been increased. See P.L. 116-94, section 207, for more information. In addition, certain states are able to increase their housing credit ceiling. The guidelines for these increases are explained in Credit ceiling increases under Purpose of Form below. Purpose of Form Housing credit agencies use Form 8610 to transmit Forms 8609, Low-Income Housing Credit Allocation and Certification, and Schedules A (Form 8610) to the IRS. Form 8610 is also used to report the dollar amount of housing credits allocated during the calendar year. The housing credit agency must not allocate more credits than it is authorized to allocate during the calendar year. Generally, the state housing credit ceiling for 2021 for any state is the sum of: 1. The larger of $3,245,625 or $2.8125 multiplied by the state’s population; 2. The amount of state housing credit ceiling returned in 2021 from allocations made prior to 2021; 3. The amount, if any, allocated to the state from the National Pool; plus 4. The unused state housing credit ceiling, if any, for 2020. See Regulations section 1.42-14 for more information. Credit ceiling increases. For 2021, the housing credit ceiling for eleven states and Puerto Rico is increased to the extent of the aggregate housing credit dollar amount allocated by a state’s housing credit agency to buildings located in a qualified disaster zone. Any increase is limited to the lesser of $3.50 multiplied by the state’s 2020 population residing in qualified disaster zones in the state, or 65% of the state’s 2020 credit ceiling. See the instructions under Line 7a, later. Note: The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (P.L. 116-260) defines a qualified disaster zone as that portion of any qualified disaster area which was determined by the President, during the period beginning on January 1, 2020, and ending on the date which is 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act (February 25, 2021), to warrant individual or individual and public assistance from the federal government under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act by reason of the qualified disaster with respect to such disaster area. COVID-19 related disasters are not included in this definition. Who Must File Any housing credit agency authorized to make an allocation of the credit (even if no credit is actually allocated) on a Form 8609 or carryover allocation reported on a Schedule A (Form 8610) to an owner of a qualified low-income building during the calendar year must complete and file Form 8610. In states with multiple housing credit agencies (including states with constitutional home rule cities), the agencies must coordinate and file one Form 8610. If a housing credit agency has granted any project relief for carryover allocations discussed in section 6 of Rev. Proc. 2014-49, 2014-37 I.R.B. 535, the agency must attach to Form 8610 a copy of Schedule A (Form 8610) for each project for which it has approved relief. The attached copy of Schedule A (Form 8610) must have the box checked that indicates the housing credit agency granted carryover allocation relief under Rev. Proc. 2014-49. The housing credit agency should only include Schedules A (Form 8610) for projects receiving approval of the carryover allocation relief since the agency last filed Form 8610. The information from these particular Schedules A (Form 8610) isn’t included on any line in Part I or Part II of Form 8610. If a housing credit agency has granted any project relief to toll the beginning of the first year of the credit period as discussed in section 10 of Rev. Proc. 2014-49, the agency must attach to the Form 8610 filed for the calendar year in which the President declared the area a major disaster area a statement containing the following information: (1) the name, address, and TIN of the building owner; (2) the address of the building; (3) the building identification number (BIN); and (4) the agency-approved first year of the credit period. The statement should be labeled “Relief Under Section 10 of Rev. Proc. 2014-49.” The statement should be signed by an agency-authorized official and a copy of the statement should be provided to the building owner. When To File File the 2021 Form 8610 with accompanying Forms 8609 (with only Part I completed) and Schedules A (Form 8610) by February 28, 2022. Where To File Send Form 8610 and attached forms and schedules to: Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service Center Philadelphia, PA 19255-0549 Penalty The $100 penalty under section 6652(j) applies to any failure to file Form 8610 when due. Specific Instructions Note: The primary housing credit agency may rely on information provided by any constitutional home rule city or local housing credit agency under Temporary Regulations section 1.42-1T(c)(3) or (4). To ensure that Form 8610 is correctly processed, attach all forms and schedules to Form 8610 in the following order. 1. Forms 8609. 2. Schedules A (Form 8610), not including those for projects approved for carryover allocation relief under Rev. Proc. 2014-49. 3.

Complete only those lines that are being amended by entering the correct information. Attach any additional documentation necessary to explain why an amended Form 8610 is being filed.

Note: Based on the presidentially declared disaster areas (other than COVID-19) that occurred during the designated time frame, additional housing credit authority was provided to eleven states (Alabama, California, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah) and Puerto Rico. Line 7b A state’s population is determined according to section 146(j). See Notice 2021-19 for applicable population figures.

The Internal Revenue Service usually releases income tax forms for the current tax year between October and January, although changes to some forms can come even later. We last updated Federal Form 8610 from the Internal Revenue Service in January 2022.
Form 8610 is a Federal Other form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.
