Income tax credits for housing choice vouchers; eligible housing areas. Expands the definition of "eligible housing area" for purposes of the housing choice voucher tax credit to include the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria Metropolitan Statistical Area. Landlords who rent qualified housing units within such areas are eligible for an income tax credit. Current law only applies to certain areas within the Richmond Metropolitan Statistical Area and the Virginia Beach-Norfolk-Newport News Metropolitan Statistical Area. The bill provides that the credit would sunset in 2025. Under current law, there is no sunset. Read the Bill »
