farm work commitment units to assist the Commission in determining if you are
marketing and holding these units properly. This Special-Needs Vacancy Report must be
submitted with the annual report (Part B/Table 1) and is due on January 31st if
the special-need set-aside or farm work commitment has NOT been met at the end
of the previous year. The Special-Needs Vacancy Report can only be used after the units have
been initially rented to special-needs or Farm Work commitment households and
the units are now vacant.
Special-Needs Vacancy Report (PDF) (Word) Rev 06/30/2012
Instructions (PDF) Rev 06/30/2012
Purpose: This report is optional and is intended to be used when a property has units that have not been made rent-ready within 30 days and/or have been vacant for longer than 90 days.
If used, this report should be submitted with the annual report that is due every year on the 31st of January.
Reminder: The IRS has stated that two or three days should be long enough to make a unit rent-ready. The Commission has taken a more reasonable stance and feels that units should be made rent-ready within 30 days.
A unit that is not made rent-ready in the prescribed time-frame can be an instance of noncompliance and is reportable to the IRS.
For further information please refer to Unit Occupancy in the Tax Credit Frequently Asked Questions and Chapter 6 in the 8823 Guide.
Purpose: Properties who provide Commission Farmworker Commitment units need
to complete this form for every qualified household that moves-in during the
calendar year. Most of the information needed to complete this report can be
found on the Household Initial Certification and Instructions form that is
completed when a new Household moves-in to the property. This report will
provide the Commission with information about the population served by the
Commitment and their occupation. The report for the previous calendar year is
due January 31 and the completed Excel Spreadsheet file should be emailed to
firstname.lastname@example.org per instructions.
Move-In Report (Excel) Rev 06/30/06 Excel workbook includes spreadsheet and complete instructions.
Purpose: This report is used by properties with transitional housing or
permanent housing for the homeless set-aside commitments in their Commission Tax
Credit Regulatory Agreement. Properties with these commitments will use
this report to confirm whether or not services are being provided for these
households. This report is due on January 31st for the previous year. A printed
copy of this report on agency letterhead should be provided with the annual
report. An enterable report form and a sample report form are provided
below. Owners may have service provider(s) fill out this report, or
provide a similar report from the service agency as long as all requested
information is included. Any household initially qualifying as homeless
counts toward the Homeless Set-Aside Commitment for as long as the household
remains in the project. We request this information in order to gather
statistics on who is benefiting from and using supportive services in
conjunction with housing. Homeless/Transitional Report (PDF) (Word) Rev
