Orrick Tax Talk 10 - Change in Use/VCAP

In certain circumstances, an issuer or borrower of tax-exempt bonds may seek to change the use of bond financed property during the life of that property, which could include selling the property. This would constitute a “deliberate act” to move a bond finance property from compliant to non-compliant in relation to certain IRS rules. Certain “deliberate acts” are permitted, however, as long as the issuer or borrower takes advantage of certain self-help rules to help them fix the corresponding tax problem. Listen to this video to learn about self-help rules and the Voluntary Closing Agreement Program as related to change in use of tax-exempt bond financed property.
