HUD Seeks Comments on Current LIHTC Tenant Data Reporting Requirements
HUD is seeking public comments by April 15, 2013, on Section 2835(d) of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) that requires each state agency administering tax credits under Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to furnish HUD, not less than annually, information concerning the race, ethnicity, family composition, age, income, use of rental assistance under Section 8 or other similar assistance, disability status, and monthly rental payments of households residing in each property receiving such credits.
HUD is required to establish standards and definitions for the information to be collected by state agencies and to provide states with technical assistance in establishing systems to compile and submit such information and, in coordination with other federal agencies administering housing programs, establish procedures to minimize duplicative reporting requirements for properties assisted under multiple housing programs.
In 2010, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the first instrument used for the collection of LIHTC household information. HUD used the previously approved form to collect data on LIHTC tenants in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Renewal of this form is required for HUD to remain in compliance with the statute.
Interested persons wishing to submit comments should refer to the proposal by name and/or OMB approval number (2528–0165), and send them to: HUD Desk Officer, Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503; or by fax to: (202) 395-5806; or by email to: OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov.
