Forrest David Milder Esq.

Nixon Peabody LLP
Forrest Milder is one of Nixon Peabody’s lead tax partners when it comes to tax credits and other tax-advantaged investments. He has a national practice that emphasizes the development of renewables, affordable housing, historic and new markets tax credit projects as well as resolving disputes with the IRS. His practice emphasizes structuring and bringing to closure many kinds of tax-advantaged projects, both for investors and those who need their investment. He has advised on an exceptionally wide range of ventures, with sizes from hundreds of thousands of dollars to hundreds of millions. Forrest is especially known for “outside-the-box” solutions. For example, he developed a technique that facilitated more than one hundred million dollars of renewable facilities qualifying for government grants, even though the projects were nominally owned by the government and bond-financed. He enabled another client to obtain a more than $15 million state credit as the first user of a new program by working with the applicable agency even before it had published any rules.
Forrest is the author or co-author of many articles on tax advantaged investments and related matters, as well as the Bloomberg BNA Tax Management Portfolio, Rehabilitation Tax Credit and Low Income Housing Tax Credit. He has appeared many times on the front page of The Wall Street Journal (in its weekly “Tax Report” column), as well as in The Boston Globe, Banker & Tradesman, The Boston Business Journal, Mass High Tech, and Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly with comments on recent and proposed tax legislation. He writes a monthly column on renewable energy, entitled “The Current,” for the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits.
