Organization

 

Boston Capital Tax Credit Fund V L.P. (the "Fund") is a limited partnership formed under the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act as of October 15, 2003. The general partner of the Fund is Boston Capital Associates V LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. The members of the general partner are Boston Capital Companion Limited Partnership, a Massachusetts limited partnership, and John P. Manning, who is the managing member. Additional members of the general partner are Jeffrey H. Goldstein and Marc N. Teal. The general partner of Boston Capital Companion Limited Partnership is Boston Capital Partners II Corporation whose sole shareholder is John P. Manning. John P. Manning is the principal of Boston Capital Partners, Inc.

 

The assignor limited partner is BCTC V Assignor Corp., a Delaware corporation which is wholly-owned by John P. Manning. The assignor limited partner was formed for the purpose of serving in that capacity for the Fund and will not engage in any other business. Units of beneficial interest in the limited partnership interest of the assignor limited partner are assigned by the assignor limited partner by means of beneficial assignee certificates ("BACs") to investors and investors are entitled to all the rights and economic benefits of a limited partner of the Fund including rights to a percentage of the income, gains, losses, deductions, credits and distributions of the Fund.

 

A Registration Statement on Form S-11 and the related prospectus, (together with each subsequently filed prospectus, the "Prospectus") were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and became effective January 2, 2004, in connection with a public offering (together with each subsequent offering of BACs described herein, the "Offering") in one or more series of a minimum of 250,000 BACs and a maximum of 7,000,000 BACs at $10 per BAC. On August 10, 2004 a Form S-11, which registered an additional 8,500,000 BACs for sale to the public in one or more series became effective. As of March 31, 2018, subscriptions had been received and accepted by the Fund for 11,777,706 BACs in three series representing capital contributions of $117,777,060 in the aggregate.

 

Description of Business

 

The Fund's principal business is to invest as a limited partner in other limited partnerships (the "Operating Partnerships") each of which will own or lease and will operate an apartment complex exclusively or partially for low- and moderate-income tenants. Each Operating Partnership in which the Fund invests owns apartment complexes, which are completed, newly-constructed, under construction or rehabilitation, or to-be constructed or rehabilitated, and which are expected to receive government assistance. Each apartment complex is expected to qualify for the low-income housing tax credit under Section 42 of the Code (the "Federal Housing Tax Credit"), providing tax benefits over a period of ten to twelve years in the form of tax credits which investors may use to offset income, subject to strict limitations, from other sources. Some apartment complexes may also qualify for the historic rehabilitation tax credit under Section 47 of the Code (the "Rehabilitation Tax Credit"). Section 236(f)(ii) of the National Housing Act, as amended, and Section 101 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1965, as amended, each provide for the making by HUD of rent supplement payments to low income tenants in properties which receive other forms of federal assistance such as tax credits. The payments for each tenant, which are made directly to the owner of their property, generally are in such amounts as to enable the tenant to pay rent equal to 30% of the adjusted family income. Some of the apartment complexes in which the Fund has invested are receiving their rent supplements from HUD. HUD has been in the process of converting rent supplement assistance to assistance paid not to the owner of the apartment complex, but directly to the individuals. At this time, the Fund is unable to predict whether Congress will continue rent supplement programs payable directly to owners of apartment complexes.

 

 1 

 

 

As of March 31, 2018 the Fund had invested in 12 Operating Partnerships on behalf of Series 47; 9 Operating Partnerships on behalf of Series 48; and 24 Operating Partnerships on behalf of Series 49. A description of these Operating Partnerships is set forth in Item 2 herein.

 

The business objectives of the Fund are to:

 

(1)provide current tax benefits to investors in the form of Federal Housing Tax Credits and, in limited instances, a small amount of Rehabilitation Tax Credits, which an investor may apply, subject to strict limitations, against the investor's federal income tax liability from active, portfolio and passive income;
(2)preserve and protect the Fund's capital and provide capital appreciation and cash distributions to limited partners through increases in value of the Fund's investments and, to the extent applicable, increase in equity through periodic payments on the mortgage indebtedness with respect to the apartment complexes;
(3)provide tax benefits in the form of passive losses which an investor may apply to offset his passive income (if any); and
(4)provide cash distributions (except with respect to the Fund's investment in some non-profit Operating Partnerships) from capital transaction proceeds. The Operating Partnerships intend to hold the apartment complexes for appreciation in value. The Operating Partnerships may sell the apartment complexes after a period of time if financial conditions in the future make such sales desirable and if such sales are permitted by government restrictions.

 

Employees

 

The Fund does not have any employees. Services are performed by the general partner and its affiliates and agents retained by them.

Item 1A.Risk Factors

 

As used in this Item 1A, references to “we, “us” and “our” mean the Fund.

 

An investment in our BACs and our investments in Operating Partnerships are subject to risks. These risks may impact the tax benefits of an investment in our BACs, and the amount of proceeds available for distribution to our limited partners, if any, on liquidation of our investments.

 

In addition to the other information set forth in this report, you should carefully consider the following factors which could materially affect our business, financial condition or results of operations. The risks described below are not the only risks we face. Additional factors not presently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial also may materially adversely affect our business operations.

 

The ability of limited partners to claim tax losses from their investment in us is limited.

 

The IRS may audit us or an Operating Partnership and challenge the tax treatment of tax items. The amount of Low Income Housing Tax Credits and tax losses allocable to the investors could be reduced if the IRS were successful in such a challenge. The alternative minimum tax could reduce tax benefits from an investment in our BACs. Changes in tax laws could also impact the tax benefits from an investment in our BACs and/or the value of the Operating Partnerships. Until the Operating Partnerships have completed a mandatory fifteen year Low Income Housing Tax Credit compliance period, investors are at risk for potential recapture of Low Income Housing Tax Credits that have already been claimed.

 

The Low Income Housing Tax Credits rules are extremely complicated and noncompliance with these rules may have adverse consequences for BAC holders.

 

Noncompliance with applicable tax regulations may result in the loss of future Low Income Housing Tax Credits and the fractional recapture of Low Income Housing Tax Credits already taken. In most cases the annual amount of Low Income Housing Tax Credits that an individual can use is limited to the tax liability due on the person’s last $25,000 of taxable income. The Operating Partnerships may be sold at a price which would not result in our realizing cash distributions or proceeds from the transaction. Accordingly, we may be unable to distribute any cash to our investors. Low Income Housing Tax Credits may be the only benefit from an investment in our BACs.

 

Poor performance of one housing complex, or the real estate market generally, could impair our ability to satisfy our investment objectives.

 

Each housing complex is subject to mortgage indebtedness. If an Operating Partnership failed to pay its mortgage, it could lose its housing complex in foreclosure. If foreclosure were to occur during the first 15 years of the existence of the Fund, the loss of any remaining future Low Income Housing Tax Credits, a fractional recapture of previously claimed Low Income Housing Tax Credits, and a loss of our investment in the housing complex would occur. To the extent the Operating Partnerships receive government financing or operating subsidies, they may be subject to one or more of the following risks:

 

 3 

 

 

- difficulties in obtaining rent increases;

- limitations on cash distributions;

- limitations on sales or refinancing of Operating Partnerships;

- limitations on transfers of interests in Operating Partnerships;

- limitations on removal of local general partners;

- limitations on subsidy programs; and

- possible changes in applicable regulations.

 

The value of real estate is subject to risks from fluctuating economic conditions, including employment rates, inflation, tax, environmental, land use and zoning policies, supply and demand of similar properties, and neighborhood conditions, among others.

 

No trading market for the BACs exists or is expected to develop.

 

There is currently no active trading market for the BACs. Accordingly, limited partners may be unable to sell their BACs or may have to sell BACs at a discount. Limited partners should consider their BACs to be a long-term investment.

 

Investors may realize taxable gain on sale or disposition of BACs.

 

Upon the sale or other taxable disposition of BACs, investors will realize taxable income to the extent that their allocable share of the non-recourse mortgage indebtedness on the apartment complexes, together with the money they receive from the sale of the BACs, is greater than the original cost of their BACs. This realized taxable income is reduced to the extent that investors have suspended passive losses or credits. It is possible that the sale of BACs may not generate enough cash to pay the tax obligations arising from the sale.

 

Investors may have tax liability in excess of cash.

 

Investors eventually may be allocated profits for tax purposes which exceed any cash distributed to them. For this tax liability, the investor will have to pay federal income tax without a corresponding cash distribution. Similarly, in the event of a sale or foreclosure of an apartment complex or a sale of BACs, an investor may be allocated taxable income, resulting in tax liability, in excess of any cash distributed to him or her as a result of such event.

 

Investors may not receive cash if apartment complexes are sold.

 

There is no assurance that investors will receive any cash distributions from the sale or refinancing of an apartment complex. The price at which an apartment complex is sold may not be large enough to pay the mortgage and other expenses which must be paid at such time. Even if there are net cash proceeds from a sale, expenses such as accrued Fund management fees and unpaid loans will be deducted pursuant to Section 4.02(a) of the Fund Agreement. If any of these events happen, investors will not get all of their investment back, and the only benefit from an investment will be the tax credits received.

 

 4 

 

 

The sale or refinancing of the apartment complexes is dependent upon the following material factors:

 

- The necessity of obtaining the consent of the operating general partners;

- The necessity of obtaining the approval of any governmental agency(ies) providing government assistance to the apartment complex; and

- The uncertainty of the market.

 

Any sale may occur well after the fifteen-year federal housing tax credit compliance period.

 

We have insufficient sources of cash to pay our existing liabilities.

 

We currently do not have sufficient cash resources to satisfy our financial liabilities. Furthermore, we do not anticipate that we will have sufficient available cash to pay our future financial liabilities. Substantially all of our existing liabilities are payable to our general partner and its affiliates. Though the amounts payable to the general partner and its affiliates are contractually currently payable, we do not believe that the general partner or its affiliates will demand immediate payment of these contractual obligations in the near term; however, there can be no assurance that this will be the case. We would be materially adversely affected if the general partner or its affiliates demanded payment in the near term of our existing contractual liabilities or suspended the provision of services to us because of our inability to satisfy these obligations. All monies currently deposited, or that will be deposited in the future, into the Fund's working capital reserves are intended to be utilized to pay our existing and future liabilities.

 

Item 1B.Unresolved Staff Comments

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 2.Properties

 

The Fund has acquired a limited partnership interest in 45 Operating Partnerships in three series, identified in the table set forth below. The apartment complexes owned by the Operating Partnerships are eligible for the Federal Housing Tax Credit. Initial occupancy of a unit in each apartment complex which initially complied with the minimum set-aside test (i.e., initial occupancy by tenants with incomes equal to no more than a designated percentage of area median income) and the rent restriction test (i.e., gross rent charged tenants does not exceed 30% of the applicable income standards) is referred to as "Qualified Occupancy." The Operating Partnerships and the respective apartment complexes are described more fully in the Prospectus. The general partner believes that there is adequate casualty insurance on the properties.

 

Please refer to Item 7. "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" for a more detailed discussion of operational difficulties experienced by certain of the Operating Partnerships.

Principal Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), which require the Fund to make various estimates and assumptions. The following section is a summary of some aspects of those accounting policies that may require subjective or complex judgments and are most important to the portrayal of the Fund’s financial condition and results of operations. The Fund believes that there is a low probability that the use of different estimates or assumptions in making these judgments would result in materially different amounts being reported in the financial statements.

 

The Fund is required to assess potential impairments to its long-lived assets, which are primarily investments in limited partnerships. The Fund accounts for its investment in limited partnerships in accordance with the equity method of accounting since the Fund does not control the operations of the Operating Partnerships. The purpose of an impairment analysis is to verify that the real estate investment balance reflected on the balance sheet does not exceed the value of the underlying investments.

 

If the book value of the Fund’s investment in an Operating Partnership exceeds the estimated value derived by management, which generally consists of the remaining future Low-Income Housing Credits allocable to the Fund and the estimated residual value to the Fund, the Fund reduces its investment in the Operating Partnership.

 

The main reason an impairment loss typically occurs is that the annual operating losses, recorded in accordance with the equity method of accounting, of the investment in limited partnership does not reduce the balance as quickly as the annual use of the tax credits. In years prior to the year ended March 31, 2009, management included remaining tax credits as well as residual value in the calculated value of the underlying investments. However, management decided to take a more conservative approach to the investment calculation and determined that the majority of the residual value component of the valuation was zero for the years ended March 31, 2018 and 2017. However, it is important to note that this change in the accounting estimate to the calculation method of the impairment loss has no effect on the actual value or performance of the overall investment, nor does it have any effect on the remaining credits to be generated.

 

In accordance with the accounting guidance for the consolidation of variable interest entities, the Fund determines when it should include the assets, liabilities, and activities of a variable interest entity (VIE) in its financial statements, and when it should disclose information about its relationship with a VIE. The analysis that must be performed to determine which entity should consolidate a VIE focuses on control and economic factors.  A VIE is a legal structure used to conduct activities or hold assets, which must be consolidated by a company if it is the primary beneficiary because it has (1) the power to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE's economic performance and (2) the obligation to absorb losses or receive benefits that could potentially be significant to the VIE. If multiple unrelated parties share such power, as defined, no party will be required to consolidate the VIE. Further, the guidance requires continual reconsideration of the primary beneficiary of a VIE.

Based on this guidance, the Operating Partnerships in which the Fund invests meet the definition of a VIE because the owners of the equity at risk in these entities do not have the power to direct their operations.  However, management does not consolidate the Fund’s interests in these VIEs, as it is not considered to be the primary beneficiary since it does not have the power to direct the activities that are considered most significant to the economic performance of these entities.  The Fund currently records the amount of its investment in these partnerships as an asset on its balance sheets, recognizes its share of partnership income or losses in the statements of operations, and discloses how it accounts for material types of these investments in its financial statements. The Fund’s balance in investment in Operating Partnerships, advances made to Operating Partnerships, plus the risk of recapture of tax credits previously recognized on the investments, represents its maximum exposure to loss.  The Fund’s exposure to loss on these partnerships is mitigated by the condition and financial performance of the underlying housing complexes as well as the strength of the general partners and their guarantee against credit recapture to the investors of the Fund.

Item 9A.Controls & Procedures

 

(a)Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of the end of the period covered by this report, the Fund’s general partner, under the supervision and with the participation of the Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer of Boston Capital Associates V LLC, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Fund’s “disclosure controls and procedures” as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15, with respect to each series individually, as well as the Fund as a whole. Based on that evaluation, the Fund’s Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer have concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, the disclosure controls and procedures with respect to each series individually, as well as the Fund as a whole, were adequate and effective in timely alerting them to material information relating to any series or the Fund as a whole required to be included in the Fund’s periodic SEC filings.

 

(b)Management's Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management of the Fund is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) of each series individually, as well as the Fund as a whole. The Fund’s internal control system over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance to the Fund’s management regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

 

Due to inherent limitations, an internal control system over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.

 

 21 

 

 

As required by Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Fund’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2018. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework (2013). Based on this evaluation, management concluded the Fund’s internal control over financial reporting was effective as of March 31, 2018.

 

(c)Changes in Internal Controls

 

There were no changes in the Fund management's internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2018 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Fund management's internal control over financial reporting.

John P. Manning, age 69, is one of the two original founders of Boston Capital Corporation, which was formed in 1974. From its beginning, Boston Capital’s goal was to focus on providing equity investment capital for the development of apartment properties throughout the country.

Through a number of affiliated partnerships, Boston Capital’s present portfolio is comprised of approximately 1,556 properties with an original development cost in excess of $19.6 billion. These properties are located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam. As CEO of Boston Capital, Mr. Manning continues to oversee the company’s business development goals. Capitalizing on its core competencies of tax credit investment underwriting, those business development goals include an expansion of investment capital for market rate real estate investment as well as providing mortgage financing for a limited and exclusive number of property acquisitions. Mr. Manning is a recognized leader in the housing and real estate industries, and has served on the boards of a number of national housing organizations and governmental commissions. In 1997, President Clinton appointed Mr. Manning to the President’s Export Council, a board comprised primarily of Fortune 500 CEOs that advised the President on government policies and programs that affect U.S. trade performance.

Prior to that, he served as manager for Homeowner Financial Services, a financial consulting firm for residential and commercial properties, and worked as an analyst responsible for budgeting and forecasting for the New York City Council Finance Division.
