Refinancing for MCC Recipients

 

Reissue MCC

Beginning in 1993, the Internal Revenue Service allowed existing recipients of Mortgage Credit Certificates (MCC) to refinance their original mortgage loans on their principal residence, without voiding their current MCC, by applying for a Reissued Mortgage Credit Certificate (RMCC) with a tax credit rate the same as their original MCC.

The Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) has created the RMCC Program as an adjunct of its regular MCC Program to implement these regulations.  The LACDA’s RMCC Program requires that existing MCC holders, who wish to refinance, use an LACDA-approved RMCC Participating Lender.  The purpose of refinancing with a Participating Lender is to ensure that the lender is fully aware of the LACDA’s RMCC guidelines and will not accidentally disqualify a MCC holder from future tax credits based on their new loan or other criteria.
