Eligibility


(1)

The following conditions and/or criteria must exist for a taxpayer to be eligible for the credit:

(a)

A qualified community development entity that issues a debt instrument may not make cash interest payments on the debt instrument during the period commencing with its issuance and ending on its final credit allowance date in excess of the sum of the cash interest payments and the cumulative operating income, as defined in the regulations promulgated under section 45D of the Internal Revenue Code, of the qualified community development entity for the same period. This limitation shall only apply to long-term debt securities issued by a qualified community development entity that are designated as qualified equity investments and shall not apply to other debt of the qualified community development entity. Neither this paragraph nor the definition of long-term debt security provided in ORS 315.529 in any way limits the holders ability to accelerate payments on the debt instrument in situations where the qualified community development entity has defaulted on covenants designed to ensure compliance with this section or section 45D of the Internal Revenue Code.

(b)

A business is considered a qualified active low-income community business for the duration of a qualified community development entitys investment in or loan to the business if it is reasonable to expect that at the time of the qualified community development entitys investment in or loan to a qualified active low-income community business, the business will continue throughout the duration of the investment in or loan to the business.

(c)

A qualified equity investment must be designated a qualified equity investment by the qualified community development entity and be certified by the department.

(d)

Prior to January 1, 2014, the maximum amount of qualified low-income community investments made in a qualified active low-income community business, together with all of its affiliates, that may count towards the requirement that a qualified community development entity invest substantially all of the qualified equity investment required by OAR 123-630-0010(7)(b) in qualified active low-income community businesses in this state is $4 million, whether made by one or several qualified community development entities.

(e)

On or after January 1, 2014, the maximum amount of qualified low-income community investments made in a qualified active low-income community business, together with all of its affiliates, that may count towards the requirement that a qualified community development entity invest at least the percentage of the qualified equity investment required by OAR 123-630-0010(7)(b) in qualified active low-income community businesses in this state is $8 million, whether made by one or several qualified community development entities. Qualified active low-income community businesses that received qualified low-income investments of up to $4 million prior to January 1, 2014, may receive additional qualified low-income investments, up to a total of $8 million, on or after January 1, 2014, only if the community development entity first submits a project summary demonstrating that the additional investment complies with the requirements of the applicable statutes and rules.

(f)

A qualified equity investment must be made before July 1, 2016. Nothing in this paragraph precludes an entity that makes a qualified equity investment prior to July 1, 2016, from claiming a tax credit relating to that qualified equity investment for each applicable credit allowance date.

(g)

No more than 40% of the total project costs that are paid for by the qualified low-income community investment may be for working capital, financing and other fees and other soft costs.

(2)

A taxpayer claiming a credit may not claim any other credit under ORS 315 or 285C during the same tax year based on activities related to the same qualified active low-income community business.
