Proc ) 3 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.

Funds a percentage of total project costs Target IRR earned through allocation of 99% of tax credits and taxable losses/income and distributable cash Typically exits the project after the flip when the Developer / Sponsor exercises its FMV purchase option 4 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC.

7 Partnership Flip Structure with PTCs Ownership structure and allocations must be respected for Federal income tax purposes Safe Harbor technically only applies to wind PTC (Rev. Proc ) No recapture provisions or limitations on PTC to tax exempt or foreign investors must be US project to qualify for PTC Depreciation limitations MACRS and bonus depreciation may be limited if tax exempt ownership in structure 7 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
8 Partnership Flip with ITC In general, the same concepts as PTC flip structures Ownership structure and allocations must be respected for Federal income tax purposes, however, no safe harbor Recapture of ITC during first 5 years Vests 20% per year ARRA 1603 Grant in lieu of tax credits has favorable recapture rules vs. ITC 8 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
9 Partnership Flip with ITC Potential limitation of ITC if tax exempt ownership in structure Deal by deal consideration and potential impacts of blocker corporations Basis reduction Depreciable (inside) basis must be reduced by 50% of the ITC Outside basis of partnership interest must be reduced by the same amount 9 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
10 Is the Tax Investor a Valid Partner? Must assure that the partnership owns the assets and the partners own their interests Rev. Proc Historic Boardwalk Hall, LLC v. Commissioner Rev. Proc Does the Tax Investor have enough upside and downside to be the tax-law owner? 10 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
11 Is the Tax Investor a Valid Partner? Burdens and benefits of ownership is key No guarantee of credit result Documents should not state the credit is being sold Pre-tax 2-3% cash-on-cash return is a good factor Accounting firm needs to maintain independence and ensure projections are realistic Court applied substance over form doctrine Paygo Puts / calls 11 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
12 Historic Rehab. Tax Credit Safe Harbor Revenue Procedure Issued on December 30, 2013 Safe harbor under which the IRS will not challenge allocations by a partnership to its partners of historic rehabilitation tax credits under IRC section 47 Issued in response to the decision in Historic Boardwalk Hall, LLC v. Commissioner 12 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
13 Economic Substance Is the transaction real or just tax motivated? Codification of economic substance doctrine in Code section 7701(o) Joint Committee explanation FN 344, March 21, It is not intended that tax credits be disallowed as lacking economic substance if a taxpayer makes the type of investment or undertakes the type of activity that the credit is intended to encourage. 13 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
14 Allocation of Partnership Items Credits are allocated consistent with: Gross receipts for PTCs General profits in the year of the credit for ITC Allocations of MACRS tax depreciation must have substantial economic effect IRS views electricity as inventory so special allocations are limited TEIs generally require all allocations for five years remain consistent with the credit allocation [generally 99%] to avoid recapture issues 14 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
15 Allocation of Partnership Items Limitation on allocation tax benefits to Investor Losses are limited to positive capital accounts unless the partner has a deficit restoration obligation or minimum gain 15 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
16 Tax Exempt Use Property Results in a reduction in the total depreciation deductions available to a partnership that makes nonqualified allocations to tax exempt entity partners A nonqualified allocation is generally an allocation to a tax exempt entity partner that is not straight-up through out the life of the partnership For this purpose, a tax exempt controlled corporation is treated as a tax exempt entity. A tax exempt controlled corporation is any domestic corporation that is owned greater than 50% (by value) by tax exempt entities 16 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
17 Tax Exempt Use Property (cont.) No ITC if property is owned by or leased to taxexempt entities Property leased to a partnership is treated as leased proportionately to its partners which could result in a proportionate loss of ITC If allocations vary, the tax rules [IRC section 168(h)(6)(C)] required measurement based on the highest share, so in a flip partnership the proportionate share of the developer can be large (e.g., 95% post-flip share in the Rev. Proc ) 17 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
18 Rev. Proc Safe Harbor for Wind Partnership Flip
19 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor General Background Directly applies to the wind PTC only No rule policy Requirements under which the IRS will respect the allocation of PTCs by partnerships in accordance with section 704(b) Applies to any partnership (the Project Company ) between a project Developer and one or more Investors, with the Project Company owning and operating the qualified wind project 19 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
20 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor General Background (cont.) Investors are partners in the Project Company whose investment return is reasonably anticipated to be derived from both PTCs and participation in operating cash flow 20 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
21 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor IRS Safe Harbor Announcement (September 21, 2009) Rev. Proc Safe Harbor not intended to provide substantive rules and not intended to be used as audit guidelines Recently issued Rev. Proc reaffirmed the minimum investment requirements in Rev. Proc Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
22 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Minimum 1 percent interest for Developer Throughout the existence of the Project Company, the Developer must have at least 1 percent interest in each material item of partnership income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit Minimum 5 percent interest for each Investor Each Investor must have a minimum interest in each item of partnership income and gain for every year, equal to 5 percent of its largest interest in income and gain for any year (99% x 5% = 4.95%) 22 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
23 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Investor s minimum investment Throughout the duration of the project, the Investor must have a minimum investment equal to 20% of the sum of (i) fixed capital contributions plus (ii) its reasonably anticipated contingent capital contributions Minimum investment may be reduced by distributions from company operations Effective with respect to an Investor s investment as of the later of the date the wind project is placed in service or the date the investor acquires its interest in the Project Company 23 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
24 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Investor s minimum investment The Investor must not be protected against loss on any portion of the Investor minimum investment Investor s non-contingent investment At least 75 percent of the sum of the fixed capital contributions plus reasonably anticipated contingent capital contributions to be contributed by an investor must be fixed and determinable and cannot be contingent or uncertain 24 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
25 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Investor s non-contingent investment (cont.) Paygo After Historic Boardwalk the best practice is to avoid paygo If there are 25% contingent amounts, best practice is to base the contingencies on non-tax business contingencies (rather than the amount of the credit) 25 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
26 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Purchase rights Announcement (September 21, 2009) Must be negotiated for valid non-tax business reasons at arm s length by parties with material adverse interests Must either be: A price that is not less than fair market value determined at the time of exercise or, If determined prior to exercise, a price that the parties reasonably believe, based on all facts and circumstances at the time the price is determined, will not be less than fair market value at the time of exercise No purchase right during first 5 years 26 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
27 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Sale rights Neither the Project Company nor the Investor can have a contractual right to cause anyone to purchase the facility or their interest in the Project Company Rev. Proc ? Allocation of PTCs Pursuant to Treas. Reg (b)(4)(ii), PTCs are allocated in the same proportion as the electricity sale that generated the PTCs 27 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
28 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Passive activity Separate activity for purposes of Section 469 Announcement (September 21, 2009) A taxpayer subject to Section 469 may utilize passive activity credits from qualified wind facilities only to the extent of their tax liability allocable to passive activities, whether from qualified wind facilities or other sources 28 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
29 Rev. Proc IRS Safe Harbor Guarantees and loans No person may guarantee or otherwise insure the Investor the right to any allocation of PTCs The Developer, the turbine supplier, or any power purchaser may not guarantee that a certain level of wind will exist The Developer and related parties may not lend any Investor the funds to acquire its interest in the project company or guarantee any debt incurred in connection with the acquisition of such interest 29 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
30 Capital Accounts Critical Concepts for a Partnership Flip
31 Capital Accounts Section 704(b) substantial economic effect The capital account analysis is the score card for the economic benefit or burden of the allocations The capital account analysis is based on the following three requirements: Capital account requirement Distribution requirement Deficit makeup requirement 31 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
32 Debt Basis Each partner s outside tax basis is generally the sum of its tax capital account balance plus its allocable share of partnership debt If the project has debt, a partner s tax capital account may go negative; provided each partner maintains a positive outside tax basis in its investment 32 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
33 Capital Accounts Example 1 Partnership Capital Account ($) Initial Contribution Year 1 Year 2 Beginning Capital Balance 100,000, ,000,000 75,200,000 Add: Additional Capital Contribution - - Less: Cash Distributed to Partners (8,800,000) (9,000,000) Subtotal (Before Current Year Allocations) 91,200,000 66,200,000 Taxable Income Allocation (16,000,000) (31,500,000) Loss Reallocation - - Total Taxable Income / Loss (16,000,000) (31,500,000) Ending Tax Capital 75,200,000 34,700,000 Share of Recourse Debt - - Share of Non-recourse Debt 31,400,000 30,500,000 Total Debt 31,400,000 30,500,000 Ending Tax Basis 106,600,000 65,200, Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
34 Partnership Tax Concepts Qualified Income Offset ( QIO ) Each partner should maintain a positive capital account If the capital account of any partner is unexpectedly negative after the initial allocations of cash and taxable income/losses, there may be a reallocation of income between partners, referred to as a qualified income offset or QIO in an amount necessary to eliminate any negative capital account balances 34 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
35 Partnership Tax Concepts Deficit Restoration Obligation ( DRO ) A partner with a negative capital account may sign up for a limited DRO so that losses continue to be allocated to the partner even though the partner s capital account goes negative A limited DRO may be required in ITC deals to ensure allocation of ITCs to Investor during recapture period 35 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
36 Partnership Tax Concepts Deficit Restoration Obligation ( DRO ) (cont.) Some Tax Investors will be willing to sign up for a limited DRO, but they will need to get comfortable that the DRO will reverse out within a desired time frame under a downside scenario (e.g., P95) A limited DRO may preserve the desired allocation percentages for tax credits and MACRS tax deprecation, but the allocated losses may be suspended pursuant to Section 704(d) 36 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
37 Partnership Tax Concepts Section 704(d) Loss Limitation Losses allocated to a partner are only allowed to the extent of the partner s outside tax basis in its partnership interest Excess losses are suspended and carried forward until the partner has sufficient tax basis Impacts when tax losses are monetized for after-tax IRR purposes 37 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
38 Debt Financing Recourse Who bears the economic risk of loss? Nonrecourse Even though partners do not bear the economic risk of loss for nonrecourse liabilities, they bear the corresponding tax burden related to relief from those liabilities in their amount realized upon the disposition of property encumbered by the debt 38 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
39 Debt Financing Partnership minimum gain The calculation of partnership minimum gain comes into play when the partnership uses nonrecourse debt to fund a portion of the capital costs of the project Nonrecourse deductions Increases partnership minimum gain Minimum gain chargeback Decreases partnership minimum 39 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
40 Debt Financing Minimum gain chargeback If there is a net decrease in partnership minimum gain for the taxable year, the minimum gain chargeback requirement applies and each partner must be allocated items of income and gain for the year equal to the partner s share of net decrease in partnership minimum gain 40 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
41 Debt Financing Minimum gain chargeback (cont.) A partner s share is based on the nonrecourse deductions previously allocated to that partner Pay close attention if the term of nonrecourse debt exceeds the taxable income/loss flip date (e.g., from 99/1 to 5/95) 41 Copyright 2014 Deloitte Development LLC. All rights reserved.
