Since our inception in 1995, Brian Wishneff & Associates has provided a variety of consulting services to clients throughout the United States. Most of our recent work has focused on assisting both tax- exempt entities and for-profit developers take advantage of various tax credits and other financial incentives by monetizing these credits to help fund their real estate projects. Our work typically involves the legal and financial structuring, securing and syndication of Historic tax credits (federal and state), New Market tax credits, Renewable Energy tax credits and other various tax credits.
While these financial incentives can offer a tremendous benefit to a project, navigating through applicable rules and regulations to take advantage of all available programs often takes significant expertise. In addition, developing a project strategy can be a crucial component of ensuring that you will receive the maximum possible benefit from these programs. Brian Wishneff & Associates will not only help to guide project sponsors through this process, but will also utilize our experience to generate the most money for your project. We have significant experience in twinning, tripling or even quadrupling the use of credits in one project. That means our clients get the financial benefit for the project from one expenditure monetization that can involve two, three and sometimes even four different credits.
Our years of experience working with projects as small as $2,000,000 and as large as $300,000,000 gives us the expertise needed to guide your project smoothly and efficiently through the process of qualifying for and receiving tax credits as well as any other available financial incentives. Based on our extensive experience, we can assist project sponsors to use available financial incentives in a way that best suits each scenario. Our firm has built strong long-standing relationships with many tax credit investors and therefore, can ensure that each project receives the highest possible payment for its credits. Finding the right tax credit investor for each project is essential to ensuring the highest yield for the generated tax credits. In addition, for ultra-competitive programs such as the New Market Tax Credit, we feel that based on our relationships with people in the industry, if anyone can bring these credits to your project, we can.
We have a history of working with both public and private entities on projects ranging from theaters and museums to hotels, office buildings and schools and therefore understand the specific interests of a given project sponsor. Because each project is unique, we offer a wide range of consulting services and the flexibility to only provide you the services you need. Our role may vary from simply tax credit consulting all the way to co-developer depending on the given needs of a project. We also have the ability to take on challenging development projects, which because of our experience with these various financial incentive programs and our ability to creatively structure transactions, whether it be a public-private partnership, joint venture or other circumstance, we will find a solution that best meet the needs of all parties in a given project. Whether you are interested in a comprehensive developer or simply need a tax credit investor for your project, we can put renovation within reach for you.
