Rent & Income Limit Calculator

The Rent & Income Limit Calculator© is available with the compliments of Novogradac & Company LLP.

The Rent & Income Limit Calculator© currently uses 2014 limit data, but will be updated with 2015 limit data as soon as it is available.


Note: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that the publication of its fiscal year (FY) 2015 income limits will be delayed and will occur following the publication of 2015 poverty guidelines issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Instead of being issued in December 2014 as originally expected, HUD anticipates that the FY 2015 income limits will be published in February 2015.

The Rent & Income Limit Calculator© is meant for the use of tax credit housing professionals only. It does not have the capability to determine eligibility for those seeking to qualify for and occupy low-income housing.

If you have questions about the income limits, or would like to engage Novogradac & Company LLP to calculate the rent and income limits for your property, please contact Thomas Stagg at
