NJ Rev Stat § 34:1B-209.3 (2013) What's This?

34:1B-209.3 Developer allowed certain tax credits.

35. a. (1) A developer, upon application to and approval from the authority, shall be allowed a credit of up to 35 percent of its capital investment, made after the effective date of P.L.2009, c.90 (C.52:27D-489a et al.) but prior to its submission of documentation pursuant to subsection c. of this section, in a qualified residential project, pursuant to the restrictions and requirements of this section. To be eligible for any tax credits authorized under this section, a developer shall demonstrate to the authority, through a project pro forma analysis at the time of application, that the qualified residential project is likely to be realized with the provision of tax credits at the level requested but is not likely to be accomplished by private enterprise without the tax credits. The value of all credits approved by the authority pursuant to P.L.2009, c.90 (C.52:27D-489a et al.) for qualified residential projects may be up to $150,000,000, except as may be increased by the authority as set forth below; provided, however, that the combined value of all credits approved by the authority pursuant to both P.L.2007, c.346 (C.34:1B-207 et seq.) and P.L.2009, c.90 (C.52:27D-489a et al.) shall not exceed $1,750,000,000. The authority shall monitor application and allocation activity under P.L.2007, c.346 (C.34:1B-207 et seq.), and if sufficient credits are available after taking into account allocation under P.L.2007, c.346 (C.34:1B-207 et seq.) to those qualified business facilities for which applications have been filed or for which applications are reasonably anticipated, and if the executive director judges certain qualified residential projects to be meritorious, the aforementioned $150,000,000 cap may, in the discretion of the executive director, be exceeded for allocation to qualified residential projects in such amounts as the executive director deems reasonable, justified, and appropriate. In allocating all credits to qualified residential projects under this section, the executive director shall take into account, together with other factors deemed relevant by the executive director: input from the municipality in which the project is to be located, whether the project furthers specific State or municipal planning and development objectives, or both, and whether the project furthers a public purpose, such as catalyzing urban development or maximizing the value of vacant, dilapidated, outmoded, government-owned, or underutilized property, or both.

(2)A developer shall make or acquire capital investments totaling not less than $50,000,000 in a qualified residential project to be eligible for a credit under this section. A developer that acquires a qualified residential project shall also be deemed to have acquired the capital investment made or acquired by the seller.

(3)The capital investment requirement may be met by the developer or by one or more of its affiliates.

(4) A developer of a mixed use project shall be allowed a credit pursuant to subparagraph (a) or (b) of this paragraph, but not both.

(a)A developer shall be allowed a credit in accordance with this section for a qualified residential project that includes a mixed use project.

(b)A developer shall be allowed a credit of up to 35 percent of its capital investment, made after the effective date of P.L.2011, c.89 but prior to its submission of documentation pursuant to subsection c. of this section, in a qualified residential project that is part of a mixed use project, provided that: (a) the capital investment in the qualified residential project represents at least $17,500,000 of the total capital investment in the mixed use project; and (b) the total capital investment in the mixed use project of which the qualified residential project is a part is not less than $50,000,000. The allowance of credits under this paragraph shall be subject to the restrictions and requirements, to the extent that those are not inconsistent with the provisions of this paragraph, set forth in paragraphs (1) through (3) of this subsection, including but not limited to the requirement prescribed in paragraph (1) of this subsection that the developer shall demonstrate to the authority, through a project pro forma analysis at the time of application, that the qualified residential project is likely to be realized with the provision of tax credits at the level requested but is not likely to be accomplished by private enterprise without the tax credits.

As used in this subparagraph:

"Mixed use project" means a project comprising both a qualified residential project and a qualified business facility.

b.A developer shall apply for the credit prior to July 1, 2014, and a developer shall submit its documentation for approval of its credit amount no later than July 28, 2017.

c.The credit shall be administered in accordance with the provisions of subsections c. and e. of section 3 of P.L.2007, c.346 (C.34:1B-209), as amended by section 32 of P.L.2009, c.90, and section 33 of P.L.2009, c.90 (C.34:1B-209.1), except that (1) all references therein to "business" and "qualified business facility" shall be deemed to refer respectively to "developer" and "qualified residential project," as such terms are defined in section 34 of P.L.2009, c.90 (C.34:1B-209.2) and (2) all references therein to credits claimed by tenants and to reductions or disqualifications in credits as determined by annual review of the authority shall be disregarded. Provided however, for purposes of a "mixed use project" as that term is used and defined pursuant to subparagraph (b) of paragraph (4) of subsection a. of this section, "qualified business facility" means that term as defined pursuant to section 2 of P.L.2007, c.346 (C.34:1B-208).

L.2009, c.90, s.35; amended 2011, c.89, s.4; 2012, c.35, s.2.
