WEBINAR: Tax Credit-Calculations and Verifications

  • January 16, 2019 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Because we don’t do “interims” on a tax credit tenant, anticipating annual income (especially on move-in) is critical.   This means we need consistency and accuracy in interpreting verifications and calculating the income that is disclosed and not be tempted to over-calculate income “just to be safe”. This session will cover best practices for verifications and calculations, what the IRS and your state monitoring agent require, and how to defend your calculations in a file audit.
