Novogradac Rent & Income Limit Calculator©

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

The Novogradac Rent & Income Limit Calculator© has been updated with the fiscal year 2018 HUD-published income limits. Before using the numbers from the Novogradac Rent & Income Limit Calculator©, you should check with the applicable state housing agency to verify that the state agrees with the numbers. Novogradac does not set rent and income limits. The Novogradac Rent & Income Limit Calculator© summarizes HUD data; however, the determination of income limits is the sole responsibility of HUD.

The Novogradac 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 [email protected].
