We are aware of the following critical system issues:

  • Missing Income Limits on Tenant Income Certification (TIC): The income limits may not populate on the TIC for non-Tax Credit properties.
        • If your site has Tax Credits or Tax Exempt Bonds and the income limits do not populate on your TIC, contact your assigned Compliance Officer for assistance.
  • Cannot Save Move-in or Initial Tenant Certifications: External users are unable to save Move-in and Initial Certifications since our last software upgrade on Thursday, February 18, 2021.
        • Guidance: Please do not delay occupying units.  Use the Best Practice Tenant Income Certification form included in the Tax Credit Compliance Forms and Documents, or other TIC form included in your property management software for all move-in and initial certifications.
  • Tenant Income Certification (TIC), Page 2, Part V Income & Rent Eligibility Error: The TIC section V populates the site minimum set-aside instead of the designated income and rent limits.
