Low Income Housing Tax Credit professionals often misunderstand verification requirements: Many believe that third-party verification is a federal requirement or that LIHTC properties must follow HUD’s verification requirements, including HUD’s definition of “third-party” verification.

Income verification for the LIHTC program isn't what it used to be. Once a simple matter of following the guidance found in HUD Handbook 4350.3 REV-1, Change 4 and the revision to HUD's definition of third-party verification have sparked loud debate within the LIHTC community over what now constitutes sufficient income verification. Some states, for example, allow pay stubs to be used as verification of income for applicants and tenants at LIHTC properties, while others do not.
