Urban aid bill clarifies IRS 277.
The bill specifies that section 277 of the Internal Revenue Code does not apply to housing co-operatives, so that interest income from reasonable reserves maintained by the co-op, as well as income form laundry and parking facilities, will not be treated as fully taxable.
Instead, this income will be eligible to be offset by housing related expenses incurred by the co-op. For limited equity co-ops, the provision would provide similar treatment for commercial rents as well.
The House had earlier agreed to a measure providing limited relief for interest on reserves, while the Senate had voted to accept Sen. Moynihan's much broader bill. This final agreement accents the Senate approach.
