As per Revenue Ruling 94-57, income limits must be implemented on the effective date or within 45 days from the published date, whichever is later, which means this year's limits must be implemented no later than
May 16, 2018.
Overview of Changes:
- There are 33 counties this year with HERA Special Limits available for projects placed in service prior to January 1, 2009.
- Conversely, several counties who had HERA Special Limits in 2017 no longer have that option in 2018.
- If your project was placed into service between December 31, 2008 and March 30, 2018, you may use the vintage limits provided only if your Project is in one of the 13 counties designated in the Income and Rent Limit document provided.
- For new projects placing in service after the effective date of 4/1/2018 you must use the 2018 limits.

HUD limits for the HOME Program have not yet been released. For purposes of projects that contain both LIHTC and HOME units, continue to use the 2017 HOME numbers.
