Impacts of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 on Tax-Exempt Bonds

The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (the "Act") was passed on January 1, 2013 by both the Senate and the House of Representatives. President Obama signed the bill into law on January 2, 2013.

The Act extends several tax-exempt bond provisions:

  • Extends the sunset date for Qualified Zone Academy Bonds until January 1, 2014, with a $400 million annual volume cap;
  • Extends the sunset date for New York Liberty Zone Bonds through January 1, 2014; and
  • Extends the exclusion of basic military housing allowances in certain areas in determining area median gross income for qualified residential rental project exempt facility bonds.

The Act does not include any restrictions on the exclusion from federal income tax of interest on tax-exempt bonds. Potential restrictions continue to be discussed by Congress and we will continue to monitor developments.
