certifications, must be file after June 29th, but no later than August 15, 2005.
Example 2: Extending the Correction Period
A state agency completed a physical inspection and identified noncompliance that required longer than 90 days to correct. The owner received notice of the noncompliance and the correction period began on January 15, 2004.
The state agency may extend the correction until July 15, 2004, giving the owner a total of 6 months to correct the problem. The Form 8823 must be filed with the IRS after July 15, 2004, but no later than August 25, 2004.
General Guidelines for Completing Form 8823 1. Select all applicable categories of noncompliance.
Example 1: The state agency determined that 1 out of 10 low-income units in a building had been rented to a household with incomes that did not meet the income eligibility restrictions. Category 11a, Household income above income limit upon initial occupancy, should be selected.
Example 2: The state agency determined that 7 out of 10 low-income units in a one- building project were rented to households with incomes that did not meet the income eligibility restrictions. As a result, the owner did not meet the 40/60 minimum set-aside for that year. Category 11a, Household income above income limit upon initial occupancy, should be selected, and category 11f, Project failed to meet minimum set-aside requirement, should be selected.
A separate Form 8823 must be filed for each BIN. The form must be prepared using the fillable PDF file as revised October 2005 (or later) with the bar codes.
When filing a “back in compliance” Form 8823, all the instances of noncompliance for a specific category must be remedied before the building is considered “back in compliance” for that category. For example, if four units are cited for violations of the UPCS inspection standards, all four units must be repaired before the building is considered back in compliance for that issue.
All categories of noncompliance must be resolved before filing a “back in compliance” Form 8823. Be sure to mark the “noncompliance corrected” boxes for each of the resolved issues. If more than one “noncompliance corrected” box is marked, enter the date of the most recent correction on line 9 of Form 8823.
An amended Form 8823 is identified by checking the box at the top of the form under the title. An amended Form 8823 should be filed with the IRS only if it is necessary to correct an error on a Form 8823 that was previously filed with the Service. For example, the wrong category is selected or an address is incorrect. A copy of the amended Form 8823 should be sent to the owner concurrent with filing the form with the IRS.
