Scott regularly partners with lenders, investors, syndicators, developers and nonprofit sponsors to advise on how best to utilize historic rehabilitation tax credits (HTCs) and new markets tax credits (NMTCs), as well as renewable energy tax credits (RETCs), as sources of financing for real estate and renewable energy investments.
Scott brings over 20 years of experience working in the community development space, advising clients during all stages of the tax credit finance lifecycle, from initial planning and tax structuring, to negotiating and documenting transactions, to providing post-closing asset management, restructuring and workout advice.
These investment tools bring much-needed capital to construct and rehabilitate healthcare centers, charter schools, hotels and residential rental and commercial facilities, as well as historical arts and community spaces and renewable energy projects, many in historic or underserved communities.
Scott is also passionate about historic preservation, and the tax incentives that drive and support economic, cultural and sustainable community benefits. To this end, he serves on the Board of Directors of both the Historic Tax Credit Coalition and the DC Preservation League, and is the co-author of "Tax Credits: Historic Boardwalk Guidance, Recommended Practices," published in Tax Notes, March 23, 2015, discussing recommended practices post issuance of Revenue Procedure 2014-12, 2014-3 IRB 415.
