Owners are required to submit the 2015 Annual Owner
Certifications and Tenant Data via OHFA's online reporting system:
DevCo Online. The 2015 Annual Owner Certification and Tenant
Data cover the reporting period from January 1, 2015 to December 31,
2015. The 2015 Annual Owner Certification and Tenant Data are

Housing Tax Credit (HTC)
Extended Use Properties:
Extended Use properties are projects that have
completed the first 15 years compliance period. Owners are required
to submit Tenant Data beginning with the 2015 reporting year on all
rental activity for the reporting year. In past years, OHFA required
tenant data for only new move-in residents. Tenant data must be
submitted for all residents.
New Projects or Those In The
If any unit is qualified during the 2015 reporting
period, the owner is required to submit the Tenant Data and Annual
Properties Sold in Reporting
If the property was sold during the reporting period,
the owner of record at the end of the reporting period (12/31/15) is
responsible for annual reporting.
Part of the normal reporting process for Housing Tax
Credit or HTC projects includes completing the Annual Operating
Survey. The 2015 survey must be completed for each development that
was awarded tax credits between 1999-2012 (tracking numbers that
begin with 99- through 12-) and that have 10 or more units. The
survey is to be completed and submitted to the Agency by March 1,
2016. Please submit completed surveys to PortfolioMailbox@ohiohome.org. Questions
regarding the Annual Operating Survey may be directed by email to Kevin
Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DevCo Resources and Help Desk
There are several resources available to assist in the use of the DevCo system as follows: the
revised and interactive Compliance
User Guide, DevCo How-To-Videos, DevCo Compliance FAQs and the
DevCo Helpdesk. In addition to the Guide, the How-To Videos
are new for this year and cover the major areas of DevCo that are
used in the reporting process. Also, OHFA held a webinar on the
Annual Reporting process. This webinar was recorded for those who
were unable to attend and is now available in the How-To Videos
It is extremely important that all questions regarding
the use of DevCo are submitted to the DevCo Helpdesk.
This will allow OHFA to track the questions and issue targeted
guidance as needed.
Questions regarding this message may be directed by
email to Betsy Krieger, Director of Program Compliance at email@example.com.
