On Thursday, September 18 the IRS issued the finalized Audit Technique Guide IRC §42, Low-Income Housing Credit. The scope of this guide is limited to guidelines for IRS examiners conducting audits of taxpayers owning IRC §42, low-income housing projects. It is organized in the order an examiner might address issues during an examination, starting with an overview of the credit and how to complete a pre-contact 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.
