Form 8609-A will show you if you meet the provisions -- and if you do, it will calculate the credit amount.
You should request a copy of Form 8609: Low-Income Housing Credit Allocation Certification for each building that qualifies for the credit. This form comes from the appropriate housing credit agency.
