The Housing Authority is required to verify all household income and uses the Enterprise Income Verification System (EIV) to assist in this process. The EIV system provides a comprehensive cross-check of income sources and reporting.
Misreporting income is considered fraud and provides grounds for being removed from all programs.
To ensure that you report all your household income, it is important to save copies of key financial documents including, but not limited to:
- W-4 Forms
- Pay Stubs
- Bank Records
- Benefit Letters
- Tax Returns
- 1099 Forms (Reporting Miscellaneous Income)
Each family has a unique financial situation. If you have any questions regarding what documents will be required for income verification, please contact your case worker.
