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 2016 is the greater of $2.35 times the state’s population or $2,690,000. 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 2016 for any state is the sum of: 1. The larger of $2,690,000 or $2.35 multiplied by the state’s population, 2. The amount of state housing credit ceiling returned in 2016 from allocations made prior to 2016, 3. The amount, if any, allocated to the state from the National Pool, plus 4. The unused state housing credit ceiling, if any, for 2015. See Regulations section 1.42-14 for more information. 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 the Schedule A (Form 8610) for the projects for which it has approved relief. These attached copies 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 2016 Form 8610 with accompanying Forms 8609 (with only Part I completed) and Schedules A (Form 8610) by February 28, 2017. Where To File File Form 8610 and attached forms and schedules with: 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.

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 May 2017.
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.
