NOTE A - ORGANIZATION


Boston Capital Tax Credit Fund III L.P. (the "Fund") was formed under the laws of the State of Delaware as of September 19, 1991 for the purpose of acquiring, holding, and disposing of limited partnership interests in operating partnerships which will acquire, develop, rehabilitate, operate and own newly constructed, existing or rehabilitated low-income apartment complexes ("Operating Partnerships"). Effective as of June 1, 2001 there was a restructuring, and as a result, the Fund's general partner was reorganized as follows. The general partner of the Fund continues to be Boston Capital Associates III L.P., a Delaware limited partnership. The general partner of the general partner of the Fund is now BCA Associates Limited Partnership, a Massachusetts limited partnership, whose sole general partner is C&M Management, Inc., a Massachusetts corporation whose limited partners are Herbert F. Collins and John P. Manning. Mr. Manning is the principal of Boston Capital Partners, Inc. The limited partner of the general partner is Capital Investment Holdings, a general partnership whose partners are various officers and employees of Boston Capital Partners, Inc. and its affiliates. The assignor limited partner is BCTC III Assignor Corp., a Delaware corporation which is wholly-owned by Herbert F. Collins and John P. Manning.


Pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, the Fund filed a Form S-11 Registration Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission, effective January 24, 1992 which covered the offering (the "Public Offering") of the Fund's beneficial assignee certificates ("BACs") representing assignments of units of the beneficial interest of the limited partnership interest of the assignor limited partner.  The Fund registered 20,000,000 BACs at $10 per BAC for sale to the public in one or more series.  On September 4, 1993 the Fund filed an amendment to Form S-11 with the Securities and Exchange Commission which registered an additional 2,000,000 BACs at $10 per BAC for sale to the public in one or more series. The registration for the additional BACs became effective on October 6, 1993. Offers and sales of BACs in Series 15 through 19 of the Fund were completed and the last of the BACs in Series 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 were issued by the Fund on September 26, 1992, December 28, 1992, September 17, 1993, September 22, 1993, and December 17, 1993, respectively.  The Fund sold 3,870,500 of Series 15 BACs, for a total of $38,705,000; 5,429,402 of Series 16 BACs, for a total of $54,293,000; 5,000,000 of Series 17 BACs, for a total of $50,000,000; 3,616,200 of Series 18 BACs, for a total of $36,162,000; and 4,080,000 of Series 19 BACs, for a total of $40,800,000.  As of September 30, 2012, 3,869,900 BACs in Series 15, 5,427,102 BACs in Series 16, and 4,999,000 BACs in Series 17, respectively, are outstanding. The Fund issued the last BACs in Series 19 on December 17, 1993.  This concluded the Public Offering of the Fund.

NOTE B - ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL REPORTING POLICIES

The condensed financial statements included herein as of September 30, 2012 and for the six months then ended have been prepared by the Fund, without audit. The Fund accounts for its investments in Operating Partnerships using the equity method, whereby the Fund adjusts its investment cost for its share of each Operating Partnership's results of operations and for any distributions received or accrued.  Costs incurred by the Fund in acquiring the investments in the Operating Partnerships are capitalized to the investment account.  

The Fund's accounting and financial reporting policies are in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles and include adjustments in interim periods considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations. Such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. It is suggested that these condensed financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Fund's Annual Report on Form 10-K.

NOTE C - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The Fund has entered into several transactions with various affiliates of its general partner, including Boston Capital Holdings LP, Boston Capital Partners, Inc., and Boston Capital Asset Management Limited Partnership, as follows:

An annual fund management fee, based on .5 percent of the aggregate cost of all apartment complexes owned by the Operating Partnerships, has been accrued to Boston Capital Asset Management Limited Partnership.  Since reporting fees collected by the series were added to reserves and not paid to Boston Capital Asset Management Limited Partnership, the amounts accrued are not net of reporting fees received.

* Fund proceeds from disposition does not include the following amount which was due to a write-off of capital contributions payable of $1,784 for Series 16.

The gain (loss) described above is for financial statement purposes only. There are significant differences between the equity method of accounting and the tax reporting of income and losses from Operating Partnership investments. The largest difference is the ability, for tax purposes, to deduct losses in excess of the Fund's investment in the Operating Partnership. As a result, the amount of gain recognized for tax purposes may be significantly higher than the gain recorded in the condensed financial statements.

The Fund's fiscal year ends March 31st of each year, while all the Operating Partnerships' fiscal years are the calendar year.  Pursuant to the provisions of each Operating Partnership Agreement, financial results for each of the Operating Partnerships are provided to the Fund within 45 days after the close of each Operating Partnerships quarterly period.  Accordingly, the current financial results available for the Operating Partnerships are for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

* Amounts include $131,245 and $388,968 for 2012 and 2011, respectively, of loss not recognized under the equity method of accounting.

The Fund accounts for its investments using the equity method of
accounting. Under the equity method of accounting, the Fund adjusts
its investment cost for its share of each Operating Partnership's results of
operations and for any distributions received or accrued. However, the
Fund recognizes individual operating losses only to the extent of
capital contributions. Excess losses are suspended for use in future years to
offset excess income.

NOTES TO CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - CONTINUED
September 30, 2012
(Unaudited)


NOTE E - TAXABLE LOSS

The Fund's taxable loss for the calendar year ended December 31, 2012 is expected to differ from its loss for financial reporting purposes.  This is primarily due to accounting differences in depreciation incurred by the Operating Partnerships and also differences between the equity method of accounting and the IRS accounting methods.  

NOTE F - INCOME TAXES

The Fund has elected to be treated as a pass-through entity for income tax purposes and, as such, is not subject to income taxes. Rather, all items of taxable income, deductions and tax credits are passed through to and are reported by its owners on their respective income tax returns. The Fund's federal tax status as a pass-through entity is based on its legal status as a partnership. Accordingly, the Fund is not required to take any tax positions in order to qualify as a pass-through entity. The Fund is required to file and does file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service and other taxing authorities. Accordingly, these financial statements do not reflect a provision for income taxes and the Fund has no other tax positions which must be considered for disclosure.

 

 

 

Item 2.  Management's Discussions and Analysis of Financial Condition and
Results of Operations


This Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contains forward-looking statements including our intentions, hopes, beliefs, expectations, strategies and predictions of our future activities, or other future events or conditions. These statements are "forward looking statements" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and are intended to be covered by the safe harbors created by these acts. Investors are cautioned that all forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainty, including, for example, the factors identified in Part I, Item 1A. "Risk Factors" of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. Although we believe that the assumptions underlying these forward-looking statements are reasonable, any of the assumptions could be inaccurate, and there can be no assurance that the forward-looking statements included in this Report will prove to be accurate. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in these forward-looking statements, the inclusion of this information should not be regarded as a representation by us or any other person that our objectives and plans will be achieved.

Liquidity

The Fund's primary source of funds is the proceeds of its Public Offering.  Other sources of liquidity will include (i) interest earned on capital contributions held pending investment and on working capital reserves and (ii) cash distributions from operations of the Operating Partnerships in which the Fund has invested and will invest.  Interest income is expected to decrease over the life of the Fund as capital contributions are paid to the Operating Partnerships and working capital reserves are expended. The Fund does not anticipate significant cash distributions from operations of the Operating Partnerships.

The Fund is currently accruing the fund management fee. Fund management fees accrued during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $289,526 and total fund management fees accrued as of September 30, 2012 were $23,926,807. During the three months ended September 30, 2012, $340,205 of accrued fund management fees were paid. Pursuant to the Partnership Agreement, these liabilities will be deferred until the Fund receives proceeds from sales of the Operating Partnerships, which will be used to satisfy these liabilities. The Fund's working capital and sources of liquidity coupled with affiliated party liability accruals allow sufficient levels of liquidity to meet the third party obligations of the Fund.  The Fund is currently unaware of any trends which would create insufficient liquidity to meet future third party obligations of the Fund.

As of September 30, 2012, an affiliate of the general partner of the Fund advanced a total of $635,362 to the Fund to pay some operating expenses of the Fund, and to make advances and/or loans to Operating Partnerships. These advances are included in Accounts payable-affiliates. During the six months ended September 30, 2012 there were no advances. Below is a summary, by series, of the total advances made to date.

Results of Operations

As of September 30, 2012 and 2011, the Fund held limited partnership interests in 123 and 141 Operating Partnerships, respectively.  In each instance the apartment complex owned by the applicable Operating Partnership is eligible for the federal housing tax credit.  Initial occupancy of a unit in each apartment complex which complied with the minimum set-aside test (i.e., initial occupancy by tenants with incomes equal to no more than a certain 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."  Each of the Operating Partnerships and each of the respective apartment complexes are described more fully in the Prospectus or applicable report on Form 8-K.  The general partner of the Fund believes that there is adequate casualty insurance on the properties.

The Fund incurs a fund management fee to Boston Capital Asset Management Limited Partnership (formerly Boston Capital Communications Limited Partnership), or BCAMLP, in an amount equal to .5 percent of the aggregate cost of the apartment complexes owned by the Operating Partnerships, less the amount of various asset management and reporting fees paid by the Operating Partnerships. The fund management fees incurred and the reporting fees paid by the Operating Partnerships for the three and six months ended September 30, 2012 are as follows:

The Fund's investment objectives do not include receipt of significant cash distributions from the Operating Partnerships in which it has invested or intends to invest.  The Fund's investments in Operating Partnerships have been made principally with a view towards realization of federal housing tax credits for allocation to its partners and BAC holders.

 

Series 15

As of September 30, 2012 and 2011, the average Qualified Occupancy for the series was 100%.  The series had a total of 29 properties September 30, 2012, all of which were at 100% Qualified Occupancy.

For the six month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, Series 15 reflects a net loss from Operating Partnerships of $(333,187) and $(461,042), respectively, which includes depreciation and amortization of $703,464 and $823,651, respectively. This is an interim period estimate; it is not indicative of the final year end results.

Beckwood Manor Eight Limited Partnership (Lakeside Apartments) is a 32-unit senior property located in Lake Village, Arkansas. The property receives rental assistance for 23 units and is more successful renting these units. It remains difficult to rent the units that do not have rental assistance. There are several other low income tax credit developments in the area offering rental assistance, and the property's continued low occupancy is attributed to this competition. Management advertises the property in Lake Village's local paper and in several other regional newspapers. The property also distributes fliers to all surrounding communities; however, management believes word of mouth and referrals are the most effective forms of obtaining potential residents. In 2011, occupancy averaged 53%, down from 61% in 2010. The property generated an $18,715 deficit in 2011, which was primarily funded by accruing management fees and management payroll due to an affiliate of the operating general partner. The operating general partner has historically funded operating deficits in this manner. Through September 2012, the property is averaging 48% occupancy and is operating below breakeven. On November 12, 2011, a fire occurred at the property, which started as a grease fire in a resident's kitchen. One apartment was a total loss, and another suffered smoke and water damage. One resident had their lease terminated, and the other resident was moved into a vacant unit. Repairs totaling approximately $95,000 were completed in September 2012, and the two damaged units are back on-line. The mortgage payments, taxes, insurance, and accounts payable are all current. On December 31, 2010, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Beckwood Manor Eight.

Livingston Plaza, Limited (Livingston Plaza) is a 24-unit, family property located in Livingston, Texas. The property has struggled with occupancy levels for several years. Despite efforts to improve the reputation of the property and reduce resident turnover and evictions, occupancy averaged 52% in both 2011 and 2010. Through September 30, 2012, average occupancy improved slightly to 65%. The continued low occupancy is partially due to economic conditions in the area and lack of qualified applicants. Management reports that trailer home ownership is very affordable in the area and often monthly mortgage payments are at a similar level as the rents at Livingston Plaza. There are also several competitive properties less than a mile from the property. Marketing consists of advertisements in local newspapers and distributing fliers to local businesses, churches, and schools. Despite operating expenses that are tightly controlled and below the state's average, the property operated below breakeven through September 30, 2012 and in 2011. Operating deficits were funded primarily by withdrawals from the replacement reserve. The property operated at about breakeven in 2010. The mortgage payments, real estate taxes, insurance, and accounts payable are current as of September 30, 2012. The operating general partner guarantee is unlimited in time and amount. On December 31, 2008, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Livingston Plaza. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership. It is unlikely that any proceeds will be available to the investment limited partners from the disposition of the property or partnership.

In April 2011, the operating general partner of Showboat Manor LDHA entered into an agreement to sell the property to a non-affiliated entity and the transaction closed on July 7, 2011. The sales price of the property was $818,348, which included the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $772,998 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $11,000. Of the total proceeds received by the investment partnership, $6,000 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the sale. Of the remaining proceeds, $5,000 was paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the sale, which includes third party legal costs. There are no remaining proceeds from the sale to be returned to cash reserves held by Series 15. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, no gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership was recorded as of September 30, 2011.

In February 2010, the operating general partner of North Prairie Manor L.D.H.A. LP approved an agreement to sell the property and the transaction closed on March 30, 2011. The sales price for the property was $939,566, which included the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $829,566 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $69,038. Of the total proceeds received by the investment partnership, $3,000 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the sale. Of the remaining proceeds, $15,000 was paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the sale, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds from the sale of $51,038 were returned to cash reserves held by Series 15. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. The sale proceeds were received April 2011; so a receivable in the amount of $69,038 was recorded for Series 15 as of March 31, 2011. Accordingly, a gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership, net of the overhead and expense reimbursement, has been recorded in the amount of $51,038 as of March 31, 2011.

In October 2011, the investment general partner transferred its interest in Autumnwood LP to an entity affiliated with the operating general partner for its assumption of the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $1,187,795 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $128,000. Of the total proceeds received, $6,924 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the transfer. Of the remaining proceeds, $5,000 was paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the transfer, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds of approximately $116,076 were returned to cash reserves held by Series 15. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, a gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership, net of the overhead and expense reimbursement, has been recorded in the amount of $116,076 as of December 31, 2011.

In October 2011, the investment general partner transferred its interest in Brunswick LP to an entity affiliated with the operating general partner for its assumption of the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $739,986 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $76,800. Of the total proceeds received, $3,321 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the transfer. Of the remaining proceeds, $5,000 was paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the transfer, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds of approximately $68,479 were be returned to cash reserves held by Series 15. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, a gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership, net of the overhead and expense reimbursement, has been recorded in the amount of $68,479 as of December 31, 2011.

In October 2011, the investment general partner transferred its interest in Lebanon II LP to an entity affiliated with the operating general partner for its assumption of the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $855,578 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $76,800. Of the total proceeds received, $16,305 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the transfer. Of the remaining proceeds, $5,000 was paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the transfer, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds of approximately $55,495 were returned to cash reserves held by Series 15. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, a gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership, net of the overhead and expense reimbursement, has been recorded in the amount of $55,495 as of December 31, 2011.

In December 2011, the investment general partner transferred its interest in Weedpatch Investment Group, CA LP to an entity affiliated with the operating general partner for its assumption of the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $1,857,960 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $90,000. Of the total proceeds received, $5,000 was paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the transfer, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds of approximately $85,000 were returned to cash reserves held by Series 15. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, a gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership, net of the overhead and expense reimbursement, has been recorded in the amount of $85,000 as of December 31, 2011.

In September 2012, the investment general partner transferred its interest in Investment Group of Payson to an entity affiliated with the operating general partner for its assumption of the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $1,394,713 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $25,000. Of the total proceeds received, $763 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the transfer. Of the remaining proceeds, $3,500 will be paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the transfer, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds of approximately $20,737 were returned to cash reserves held by Series 15. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero.

In addition, the investment general partner on behalf of the investment partnership entered into a residual receipt promissory note (the "RRN") with the Operating Partnership for receipt of a residual payment. Under the terms of the RRN, if there is a capital transaction involving the property owned by the Operating Partnership at any time within ten years from the initial transfer date, there would be a residual payment distributable to the investment partnership in accordance with the Operating Partnership Agreement in effect at the date the investment limited partner transferred its interest.

Series 16

As of September 30, 2012 and 2011, the average Qualified Occupancy for the series was 100%. The series had a total of 36 properties at September 30, 2012, all of which were at 100% Qualified Occupancy.

For the six month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, Series 16 reflects a net loss from Operating Partnerships of $(510,028) and $(569,384), respectively, which includes depreciation and amortization of $916,417 and $1,301,137, respectively. This is an interim period estimate; it is not indicative of the final year end results.

Butler Rental Housing LP (Forest Pointe Apartments) is a 25-unit family property located in Butler, Georgia. During the first quarter of 2012 the property operated below breakeven due to low occupancy caused by a weak rental market. Occupancy began to decline in June 2011 and the property averaged 82% in the first half of 2012. As of September 2012, the property was 84% occupied. Occupancy has declined due to high unemployment and an overall trend of household consolidation in the market. The property has recently hired new onsite and district managers. They have increased marketing efforts including flier distribution, local newspaper advertising and tenant referral incentives. An effort to appeal the 2012 tax bill was successful and a 50% reduction will be realized on the upcoming tax bill that will improve the property's cash flow. The mortgage payments, taxes, insurance, and accounts payable are all current. On December 31, 2008, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Butler Rental Housing LP.

Blairsville Rental Housing, Limited Partnership (Tan Yard Branch Apartments I) is a 24-unit family property located in Blairsville, GA. The property has performed poorly over the last several years due to locally weak economic conditions that began in 2009 and have continued through the third quarter of 2012. Many employers have either closed or significantly reduced employee hours. As a result of a large portion of the tenant base being composed of hourly-wage employees, evictions and move outs have increased. In addition, several tenants requiring greater personal care have transferred to nursing home facilities, causing occupancy to decline further. Because of the property's rural location, traffic at the site has been limited. Management has been aggressively marketing the community by distributing fliers throughout the area and by having brightly colored directional signage installed. Additionally, a tenant referral program has been implemented and move-in specials are being offered. These efforts have been successful in 2012, as occupancy has increased from 63% in January 2012 to 92% in September 2012. However, due to the high vacancy loss experienced in the first half of the year, the property continues to operate below breakeven. The mortgage, real estate taxes, and insurance payments are current. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Blairsville Rental Housing.

St. Croix Commons Limited Partnership (St. Croix Commons Apartments) is a 40-unit family property located in Woodville, Wisconsin. Occupancy at the end of the third quarter of 2012 was 98%. Although expenses remain below the state averages for the investment limited partnership's portfolio of properties, low rental rates in the area have prevented the property from achieving breakeven operations. The property's taxes and insurance are current; however, the operating general partner stopped making debt service payments in 2011 due to cash flow shortfalls. In the first quarter of 2012, the investment general partner learned that the property was ten months in arrears on its mortgage and the lender had issued a notice of default. The operating general partner contacted the lender in the hope of gaining an interest only forbearance for a four year period. The lender did not agree to modify the terms of the loan and demanded a payment of $736,851 to be made by November 15, 2011 to cure the default. The operating general partner failed to make the payment and the lender has commenced foreclosure proceedings. The redemption period for the foreclosure in this action is six months. The default foreclosure judgment was entered on February 23, 2012; the redemption period ended on August 23, 2012. A foreclosure sale occurring in 2012 would not result in any recapture or penalties because the property is beyond the compliance period. A local developer bought the loan at sheriff's sale from the lender. The operating general partner then bought the property back from the local developer. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to St. Croix Commons.

In August 2011, the investment general partner transferred its interest in Sable Chase of McDonough to a non-affiliated entity for its assumption of the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $3,077,178 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $150,000. Of the total proceeds received, $63,990 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the transfer. Of the remaining proceeds, $17,500 was paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the transfer, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds of approximately $68,510 were returned to cash reserves held by Series 16. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, a gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership, net of the overhead and expense reimbursement, has been recorded in the amount of $68,510 as of September 30, 2011.

Greenfield Properties, Limited Partnership (Greenfield Properties) is a 20-unit elderly property located in Greenfield, Missouri. In 2012, the property continues to operate below breakeven due to insufficient rental rates, inconsistent occupancy and high operating expenses. After averaging 85% occupancy in 2011, and reaching 100% occupancy in June 2012, the property backtracked and finished September 2012 at 85% occupancy. Management continues to advertise in the local newspaper and place fliers in area schools and at the local community center, but persistent low employment and a depressed local economy continue to present leasing challenges. A $15 per unit per month rent increase approved by the Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) and implemented in January 2012 has improved revenue, but not enough to greatly improve performance. Management has already petitioned MHDC for an additional $15 per unit, per month, for 2013 and is waiting for approval. This would raise an additional $3,600 annually and while it would again improve revenue it is unlikely to have enough of an impact to greatly affect performance without increased occupancy. High operating expenses continue to be an issue due to high vacancy loss and maintenance costs related to vacant unit turnovers. All taxes, insurance and mortgage payments are current. On December 31, 2008, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Greenfield Properties, Limited Partnership. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

Meadows of Southgate L.D.H.A., LP (Meadows of Southgate) is an 83-unit elderly property located in Southgate, Michigan. During the third quarter of 2012 the property continued to operate below breakeven largely due to ongoing occupancy challenges caused by a weak rental market.

The operating general partner confirmed that the Down River area of Detroit is still dealing with a very soft rental market and that the reduction of supportive services in Wayne County is exacerbating the situation. The management agent, an affiliate of the operating general partner, continues to focus on improving occupancy through curb appeal enhancements and new marketing initiatives including rental concessions, lowered rental rates, and expanded leasing office hours.

The property operated below breakeven in 2011 and continues to operate below breakeven in 2012 due to insufficient rental rates and high debt service payments. After averaging 94% occupancy in 2011, the property reached 97% occupancy as of August 2012, and is averaging 95% through September 2012. Management had proposed a rent increase in its 2012 budget to partially offset high debt service, but their request was denied by Maine State Housing Authority (MSHA). On October 11, 2011, MSHA, the mortgage lender, issued a notice of default due to unpaid taxes, delays in past insurance payments, and underfunded tax, insurance, and replacement reserve escrow accounts. On November 11, 2011, the investment general partner issued a letter to the operating general partner stating that they are in violation of the Partnership Agreement for failure to advance funds to meet operating expenses and debt service, including replacement reserves, as the operating general partner's operating deficit guaranty is unlimited in time and amount. As of the end of the fourth quarter of 2011, the insurance payment issue had been resolved and the operating general partner had submitted a payment plan to MSHA to address the remaining default issues. In August 2012, it was learned that the operating general partner's proposal was denied by MSHA and that MSHA had called the note on the property, demanding either the immediate repayment of the outstanding mortgage balance due, or a foreclosure sale of the property at auction.

Green Acres Limited Partnership (Green Acres Estates) is a 48-unit (20 tax credit units) property located in West Bath, Maine. The property operated below breakeven in 2011 due to high vacancy, insufficient rental rates and high debt service. Through September 2012, the property continues to operate below breakeven due to low occupancy and rental rates, high maintenance expenses, and a high interest rate on the debt. After averaging 77% occupancy in 2011, occupancy has increased to average 81% through September 2012. Improving occupancy is a challenge due mostly to the property's poor physical condition, the lack of available rent-ready units, and its isolated location. Management indicated that the closing of the nearby Brunswick Naval Air Station in May 2011 has affected occupancy through subsequent high local unemployment and relocation of some tenants. Higher maintenance expenses are related to management's efforts to make ready additional units. Management is working to improve collections and the initial resident screening process. On October 11, 2011, the lender MSHA, issued a notice of default due to unpaid taxes, delays in past insurance payments, and underfunded tax, insurance, and replacement reserve escrow accounts.

Occupancy increased throughout 2011 ending at 95%, while the property continued to operate below breakeven. As of September 30, 2012, occupancy was 100%. Despite the improvement in occupancy, the property continued to operate below breakeven in 2012. All real estate tax, mortgage, and insurance payments are current. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Natchitoches Elderly Apartments LP. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

Newton I, Limited Partnership (Newton Plaza Apartments) is a 24-unit family development in Newton, Iowa. Occupancy has trended downward since 2006, and the increased vacancy along with high operating expenses have caused below breakeven operations. Operations improved in 2011 due to the expanded marketing efforts of a new onsite manager. The property averaged 88% occupancy for the year. Despite the improvement over the past years, the property continues to be monitored by the investment general partner as occupancy has decreased to 75% as of September 30, 2012. Occupancy has struggled due to soft market conditions. Management continues to increase advertising in surrounding areas and to offer incentives but has struggled to find qualified applicants. Although occupancy has decreased in 2012 the property is still operating above breakeven through the third quarter 2012. There was a site visit done in June 2012 and the property was found to be in good condition. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Newton I. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

Bear Creek of Naples (Bear Creek Apartments) is a 120-unit family development located in Naples, Florida. Occupancy remained strong in the third quarter of 2012, with September occupancy ending at 98%. However, the property continued to operate below breakeven due to high administrative and real estate tax expenses as well as a court ordered special assessment fee. The property's insurance payments are current but the real estate taxes are delinquent. The local tax authority has issued a tax certificate for the delinquent taxes, which will accrue interest until paid. The operating general partner has three years to pay the delinquent taxes before the property goes to tax sale. The operating general partner paid the 2010 real estate taxes in the first quarter of 2011, paid the 2011 real estate taxes in November 2011 and anticipates paying the 2009 real estate taxes in late 2012, which is within the allotted three year deadline before the property could face a tax sale. The 2012 taxes are anticipated to be paid when due. The mortgage was also delinquent until a settlement was reached at the end of May 2012 as the operating general partner stopped making mortgage payments in June 2010 in an attempt to focus the lender's attention on the property. During the second quarter of 2011, the operating general partner discussed with the investment general partner whether the Operating Partnership should declare bankruptcy in order to delay a foreclosure and to maintain control of the property. The investment general partner advised the operating general partner not to file for bankruptcy. However, on June 6, 2011 Bear Creek of Naples, Ltd. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Authority to do so was vested solely with the operating general partner; the investment limited partner did not consent to this action. The court ordered a monthly "special assessment" payment of $20,000 to the lender starting in July 2011 and continuing until a settlement was reached. In December 2011, May 2012 and March 2012 there were hearings with regard to a motion to reach an agreement on the appraised value of the property. During the July 26, 2012 hearing, the property value and new monthly payment of principal and interest were determined. The first mortgage's past due accrued interest and principal were eliminated and the interest rate was lowered. Additionally, a significant portion of the second mortgage's principal was wiped out and loan servicing fees, compliance monitoring fees, and interest accruals that arose prior to May 21, 2012 were waived. The property can support the new monthly debt service. Now that a settlement has been reached, the operating general partner will attend a hearing on October 31, 2012 where a final decree is expected to be issued that should take Bear Creek of Naples, Ltd out of Chapter 11. The operating general partner is attempting to find a buyer to acquire the operating general partner and investment limited partner interest. The investment general partner intends to continue to monitor the process. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Bear Creek of Naples. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

In August 2011, the operating general partner of Parvin's Limited Partnership approved an agreement to sell the property to a non-affiliated entity and the transaction closed on January 30, 2012. The sales price for the property was $900,000, which included the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $319,948 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $450,000. Of the proceeds received by the investment partnership, $445,000 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the sale. Of the remaining proceeds, $5,000 will be paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the sale, which includes third party legal costs. No proceeds were returned to cash reserves held by Series 18. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, no gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership was recorded as of March 31, 2012.

Humboldt I, LP (Briarwood Apartments) is a 20-unit property located in Humboldt, IA. Operations have struggled at the property for the past several years due to low occupancy and high maintenance expenses related to resident turnover. Lack of cash flow and withdrawals to finance capital expenditures have resulted in an underfunding of the replacement reserve escrow. Historical and ongoing challenges cited by management include problem tenants that require eviction, difficulty attracting quality tenants, and the poor state of the local economy. Management relies heavily on outside contacts and referrals from the local housing authority, but also runs advertisements on a weekly basis in a free weekly advertiser that is distributed throughout town. Advertising has been expanded into surrounding towns to increase interest in the property. The property is operating under a Servicing Workout Plan approved by Rural Development on March 1, 2011. The plan aims to fully fund the replacement reserve escrow, reduce accounts payable, and increase occupancy. The plan has been effective as average occupancy in 2011 was 92%, and the property operated above breakeven. In addition, accounts payable have been reduced significantly and are now at manageable levels. The property is operating above breakeven through the third quarter of 2012. Occupancy is at 85% as of September 30, 2012. The investment general partner performed a site visit in June 2012 and the property was found to be in good condition. The mortgage, taxes, and insurance are current. On December 31, 2010, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Humboldt I, LP.

Marengo Park Apartments LP (West Pine Homes) is a 24-unit property located in Marengo Park, IA. Occupancy has historically been an issue at this property, mainly due to evictions for nonpayment of rent and residents vacating because of job losses. The property is operating under a Servicing Workout Plan approved by Rural Development on October 1, 2010, which aims to fund the replacement reserves, make payables current, and resolve capital improvement issues through expanded marketing efforts to improve occupancy. In the summer of 2010 the operating general partner hired a new property manager and changed the name of the community to West Pine Homes with the hopes of improving the reputation of the property. Current marketing includes advertising on Rent.com, advertising in the Local Free Shopper (which covers three cities/towns), posting fliers in the local community and frequent contacts with local agencies, as well as 'for rent' signs located on the property. Occupancy averaged 83% in 2011 and the property operated above breakeven. In 2012, occupancy has remained a concern as the property is 83% occupied as of September 30, 2012. Despite the inconsistent occupancy, the property has continued to operate above breakeven through the third quarter. The property is able to operate above breakeven at low occupancy levels because management keeps very tight control on expenses. The investment general partner intends to work closely with the operating general partner until occupancy improves and operations stabilize. The investment general partner performed a site visit in June 2012 and the property was found to be in good condition. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Marengo Park Apartments. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

In September 2012, the investment general partner transferred its interest in San Joaquin Enterprises III, A CA Limited Partnership to an entity affiliated with the operating general partner for its assumption of the outstanding mortgage balance of approximately $1,681,071 and cash proceeds to the investment partnership of $25,000. Of the total proceeds received, $563 represents reporting fees due to an affiliate of the investment partnership and the balance represents proceeds from the transfer. Of the remaining proceeds, $3,500 will be paid to BCAMLP for expenses related to the transfer, which includes third party legal costs. The remaining proceeds of approximately $20,937 were returned to cash reserves held by Series 18. The monies held in cash reserves will be utilized to pay current operating expenses, accrued but unpaid asset management fees, and accrued but unpaid expenses of the investment partnership. After all outstanding obligations of the investment partnership are satisfied, any remaining monies will be distributed based on the number of BACs held by each investor at the time of distribution. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, a gain on the sale of the Operating Partnership, net of the overhead and expense reimbursement, has been recorded in the amount of $20,937 as of September 30, 2012. In addition, the investment general partner on behalf of the investment partnership entered into a residual receipt promissory note (the "RRN") with the Operating Partnership for receipt of a residual payment. Under the terms of the RRN, if there is a capital transaction involving the property owned by the Operating Partnership at any time within ten years from the initial transfer date, there would be a residual payment distributable to the investment partnership in accordance with the Operating Partnership Agreement in effect at the date the investment limited partner transferred its interest.

Series 19

As of September 30, 2012 and 2011 the average Qualified Occupancy for the series was 100%.  The series had a total of 10 properties at September 30, 2012, all of which were at 100% Qualified Occupancy.

For the six month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, Series 19 reflects a net loss from Operating Partnerships of $(132,571) and $(392,897), respectively, which includes depreciation and amortization of $295,757 and $451,829, respectively. This is an interim period estimate; it is not indicative of the final year end results.

Carrollton Villa, L.P. (Meadow Ridge Apartments), is a 35-unit family project located in Carrollton, Missouri. The property was operating with below breakeven operations caused by low rental rates, high operating expenses, high utility costs and high debt service. The property averaged 99% occupancy in 2011 and continues to average 99% occupancy through September 2012. The property is operating above breakeven in 2012 due to a renegotiated debt service payment and lower utility expenses. Management has petitioned the Missouri Housing Development Commission (MHDC) for a $10 per unit rent increase effective January 2013 and expects a decision sometime in November 2012. The rent increase will add $4,200 annually to revenue. Over the past six years the City of Carrollton increased water and sewer rates to cover the repair of water lines, such that since 2005, water and sewer rates increased over 300%. While management continues to include similar water/sewer increases in its budgets, it significantly reduced water/sewer costs starting in 2011 when it discovered and repaired a leak to a city-owned, underground water pipe. The Operating Partnership received a rebate from the city in February 2012. This pipe, which may have been leaking since 2009, had drastically and improperly increased usage at the property. Water/sewer expenses are now roughly a third of previous years. To alleviate pressure on cash flow, in 2004, MHDC agreed to make the mortgage cash flow only for a year, which would then be revisited on a year-to-year basis. MHDC has since extended its deferral through the remaining term of the loan, in 2036. This allowed the property to drastically reduce its debt service payments and operating deficits. Site staff wages were also reduced $5 and $2 per hour for the manager and maintenance technician, respectively. The real estate taxes, mortgage and insurance are all current. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Carrollton Villas. The investment general partner continues to look at various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

Forest Associates Limited (Sharon Apartments) is a 24-unit apartment complex for families located in Forest, OH. The operating general partner passed away in the second quarter of 2007 and his widow assumed the operating general partner responsibilities. During 2008, communication with the new operating general partner became extremely difficult. The operations declined and the property operated below breakeven for 2008 with occupancy ending at 63% for December 2008. During the first quarter of 2009, the investment general partner learned that the current management company's contract had been terminated as of December 31, 2008. In addition, Rural Development accelerated the note and started foreclosure proceedings. Although the operating general partner appealed, the appeal was denied. The investment general partner learned of these developments from the real estate broker engaged by the operating general partner. The affiliated management company of a potential replacement operating general partner was placed on-site by Rural Development during May 2009. The potential operating general partner had been interested in acquiring the operating general partner and investment general partner interests, but attempts by the potential operating general partner to develop a workout plan failed and Rural Development foreclosed on the property on September 16, 2011. On December 31, 2010, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Forest Associates. Annual losses generated by the Operating Partnership, which were applied against the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership in accordance with the equity method of accounting, had previously reduced the investment limited partnership investment in the Operating Partnership to zero. Accordingly, no gain on the foreclosure of the Operating Partnership was recorded as of December 31, 2011.

Sherwood Knoll L.P. (Sherwood Knoll Apartments) is a 24-unit project in Rainsville, Alabama. Occupancy averaged 95% and 90% in 2010 and 2011, respectively. In order to improve occupancy and increase traffic at the property, management has been advertising in the local newspaper as well as posting fliers throughout the immediate area. A new site manager was hired in the second quarter of 2011, and regional management reports that she is very effective at collecting current and delinquent rents. To assist in improving property operations, Rural Development approved a $10 rent increase effective January 1, 2011. This caused 2011 revenue to improve by 9% despite the fact that occupancy decreased by 5%. Although operating expenses increased by 15% in 2011, the property was able to generate cash due to the higher revenue. Rural Development approved an additional rent increase of $15 that began on January 1, 2012. In the third quarter of 2012, occupancy dropped to 88%, with operations below breakeven status. The operating deficit guarantee is unlimited in time and amount. The real estate taxes, mortgage and insurance are all current. On December 31, 2008, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Sherwood Knoll, L.P. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

Northpointe, L.P. (Northpointe Apartments) is a 158-unit family property located in Kansas City, MO. Rents have been kept below the maximum allowable to remain competitive with two nearby tax credit properties developed within the past five years. Occupancy in 2012 remains strong through the third quarter of 2012 averaging 95%, with operations remaining below breakeven status. Move-outs continue due to the struggling local economy. The main reason for residents moving out is that they cannot afford to pay the rent or are evicted for non-payment. In 2012, rental rates continue to remain insufficient to cover expenses. Management continues to advertise in For Rent Magazine, and online, and has temporarily reduced selected one and two bedroom rents in order to improve occupancy. The operating general partner and investment general partner have explored refinancing and disposition options, but the significant prepayment penalty of $770,000 associated with the debt has prevented a sale or refinance from being a feasible option. The operating general partner plans to continue funding the property to the best of his ability until the mortgage maturity date of August 2014. Most recently, the operating general partner contacted the lender to see if they could modify the loan terms. The lender has not been responsive to the request. Written documentation received confirms that the property's mortgage, real estate taxes and insurance payments are all current through September 2012. On December 31, 2009, the 15-year low income housing tax credit compliance period expired with respect to Northpointe Limited Partnership. The investment general partner is in the process of exploring various disposition opportunities consistent with the investment objectives of the investment partnership.

Principal Accounting Policies and Estimates

The condensed 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.

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 plus advances made to Operating Partnerships 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.

 

 

 

Recent Accounting Changes

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued an update to existing guidance related to fair value measurements on how to measure fair value and what disclosures to provide about fair value measurements. For fair value measurements categorized as level 3, a reporting entity should disclose quantitative information of the unobservable inputs and assumptions, a description of the valuation processes and narrative description of the sensitivity of the fair value to changes in unobservable inputs. This update is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this update did not materially affect the Fund's condensed financial statements.

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 C&M Management Inc., carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Fund's "disclosure controls and procedures" as defined under 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 Fund's disclosure controls and procedures were effective to ensure that information relating to any series or the Fund as a whole required to be disclosed by it in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to the Fund's management, including the Fund's Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure with respect to each series individually, as well as the Fund as a whole.
