Tax Credit Consulting: Qualified Zone Tax Credit Bonds

Qualified Zone Tax Credit Bonds

Qualified Zone Tax Credit Bonds are a special type of tax credit available to banks, insurance companies, and other corporations actively engaged in lending money.

The Qualified Zone Tax Credit Bonds are also called Qualified Zone Academy Bonds, or QZABs. The credit was authorized by various pieces of tax legislation. The last one was the Working Families Tax Relief Act of 2004 which extended the program through 2005 with December 31, 2007 as the last day to issue bonds authorized in 2005. Qualified Zone Tax Credit Bonds are geared toward helping to provide financing for schools in low income areas.

The Government begins the program cycle by allocating around $400 million dollars in bonding authorization to the various States. This bonding allocation is determined based on the number of people in the State that are at the poverty level. The poorest States get the most allocation.

The one disadvantage to the Qualified Zone Academy Bonds is that the benefit has no carry over and carry back provisions. The credit must be taken during the year it applies to or it is lost. This is not too much of a deterrent to most large lending institutions that wi...
