N.J. Admin. Code § 10:69-10.20 - Income from apartments, rooms or housekeeping units in the eligible unit's home

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) When the eligible unit is receiving payment from rental of apartments, rooms or housekeeping units, the net income shall be determined by deducting the costs of operation and maintenance from the gross rental income received.
1. The costs of operation and maintenance are the greater of:
i. The actual costs of operation and maintenance, if known or subject to determination, or such reasonable allocation of actual or determined costs as may be indicated according to the space being rented out; or
ii. The number of rooms, excluding bathrooms, being rented out multiplied by the applicable monthly cost figure as follows:
(1) With no utilities: $ 23.00;
(2) Including heat only: $ 29.00;
(3) Including all utilities: $ 34.00.
2. To determine the total cost, multiply the monthly cost figure by the number of rooms in each apartment or housekeeping unit, excluding any room used solely as a bathroom.
3. Deduct the total cost from the amount of rental income received by the eligible unit. The difference is the net income.
i. Rental income shall be treated as earned income except in those situations where rental properties are in the hands of rental agencies; in such case, the income shall be considered as unearned.
(b) When the functions of property management including the collection of rents are performed by a member(s) of the eligible unit, the net is earned income; otherwise it is unearned income.
