STATE OF HAWAII
HAWAII HOUSING FINANCE AND DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION

MORTGAGE CREDIT CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

Section 25 of the Internal Revenue Code authorizes "issuers" to issue Mortgage Credit Certificates ("MCC") in lieu of qualified mortgage bonds. The State of Hawaii’s Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation ("HHFDC") is an issuer of MCCs. HHFDC intends to implement a $50,000,000 MCC program approximately 90 days after the date of publication of this notice.

The MCC Program provides homeownership opportunities for qualified households through a federal income tax credit. The MCC can help first-time homebuyers qualify for a mortgage loan by increasing their buying power at their current income. MCCs entitle an eligible borrower to a direct tax credit against the eligible borrower’s federal income tax liability, making more income available both to qualify for a mortgage loan and to make the monthly mortgage payments.

The MCC can be applied to most types of mortgage loans for new or existing single family dwellings, including townhouse/condominium and manufactured homes.

MCC ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

Borrowers interested in participating in the HHFDC’s Mortgage Credit Certificate Program must meet the following eligibility requirements/criteria:

1.  Residence Requirement: The borrower must use the residence as the borrower’s principal residence within a reasonable time (sixty days) after loan closing and the borrower must notify the HHFDC or Participating Lender if the residence ceases to be the borrower’s principal residence.

2. 3-Year Requirement: The borrower cannot have had any ownership interest in a principal residence at any time during the preceding three-year period prior to the date on which the mortgage on the residence in connection with which an MCC is provided is executed.  The 3-year no prior ownership requirement does not apply to loans made in targeted areas as defined under the Program.

3. Purchase Price and Income Requirement
The acquisition cost of the residence and family income of the borrower cannot exceed the following:

  County  Acquisition Cost

  Honolulu   $663,882
  Maui   $605,646
  Kauai   $656,470
  Hawaii   $338,823

      Income Limits          Families of                   Families of
  County    2 or less  3 or more
 
  Honolulu   $120,600   $140,700
  Maui   $96,600   $112,700
  Kauai   $98,400   $114,800
  Hawaii   $82,400   $94,760

The purchase price and income limits may be (1) increased by the HHFDC for mortgage loans made in targeted areas; or (2) increased or decreased by the HHFDC pursuant to Internal Revenue Service guidelines.  The purchase price limits apply only to fee simple, fully completed units.  Leasehold residences and uncompleted units are subject to certain adjustments in determining their "acquisition cost" as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.

4. New Mortgage Requirement: An MCC cannot be issued in conjunction with the acquisition, replacement or refinancing of an existing mortgage.  However, the MCCs can be used in conjunction with the replacement of construction period loans, bridge loans, or similar financing of a temporary nature with a term of twenty-four (24) months or less.  An MCC must be issued to a borrower who did not have a mortgage on the residence with respect to which the MCC is issued at any time prior to the execution of the mortgage.

5. Prohibited Mortgages: An MCC cannot be issued in connection with the acquisition of a residence for which the financing of the residence is provided from the proceeds of (1) a qualified mortgage bond or (2) a qualified veterans’ mortgage bond.

6. Interest Paid to Related Persons: Interest on the amount of the indebtedness which is incurred by the borrower to acquire the borrower’s residence must not be paid to a related person.

METHODS BY WHICH MCCs ARE ISSUED:

The MCC is applied for at the time the borrower makes a formal application for a home loan. Borrowers may apply for a loan with any lender but MCCs are only available through Participating Lenders.  If, based on the information provided by the Participating Lender, a borrower is determined to be eligible, HHFDC will commit to issuing an MCC to the borrower. Commitments will be made on a first come, first served basis to the extent MCCs remain available. Assuming no material changes between the commitment and the loan closing, and upon receipt of an acceptable MCC closing package, which shall include the MCC review fee of $25 and issuance fees of $400 ($300 to HHFDC and $100 to the participating lender), HHFDC will issue the MCC to the borrower after the closing date of the mortgage loan.  No MCC will be issued prior to 90 days of publication of this notice or after the date that all of the MCCs have been allocated and, in no event, later than the date permitted by federal tax law.

4. New Mortgage Requirement: An MCC cannot be issued in conjunction with the acquisition, replacement or refinancing of an existing mortgage.  However, the MCCs can be used in conjunction with the replacement of construction period loans, bridge loans, or similar financing of a temporary nature with a term of twenty-four (24) months or less.  An MCC must be issued to a borrower who did not have a mortgage on the residence with respect to which the MCC is issued at any time prior to the execution of the mortgage.

5. Prohibited Mortgages: An MCC cannot be issued in connection with the acquisition of a residence for which the financing of the residence is provided from the proceeds of (1) a qualified mortgage bond or (2) a qualified veterans’ mortgage bond.

6. Interest Paid to Related Persons: Interest on the amount of the indebtedness which is incurred by the borrower to acquire the borrower’s residence must not be paid to a related person.

METHODS BY WHICH MCCs ARE ISSUED:

The MCC is applied for at the time the borrower makes a formal application for a home loan. Borrowers may apply for a loan with any lender but MCCs are only available through Participating Lenders.  If, based on the information provided by the Participating Lender, a borrower is determined to be eligible, HHFDC will commit to issuing an MCC to the borrower. Commitments will be made on a first come, first served basis to the extent MCCs remain available. Assuming no material changes between the commitment and the loan closing, and upon receipt of an acceptable MCC closing package, which shall include the MCC review fee of $25 and issuance fees of $400 ($300 to HHFDC and $100 to the participating lender), HHFDC will issue the MCC to the borrower after the closing date of the mortgage loan.  No MCC will be issued prior to 90 days of publication of this notice or after the date that all of the MCCs have been allocated and, in no event, later than the date permitted by federal tax law.
