Changes to TAR calculation for FY2022. As outlined in PIH-Notice 2022-2, a development with Tenant Accounts Receivable (TAR) ratio of 80% or more would receive 5 points. To clarify, the ratio of 80% or more is based on the percentage of Tenant Revenue not in Accounts Receivable (received on time), while the TAR amount is the amount of tenant revenue past due to outstanding. Therefore, the actual scoring thresholds, which will be used for only FY 2022 scoring, for the TAR ratio are:
TAR <= 0.20 5 Points
0.20 < TAR <= 0.40 2 Points
TAR > 0.40 0 Points
Please note that the original thresholds used in assessments prior to FY2022 will resume in FY2023 assessments unless otherwise announced.
