Amend Housing Allowance
by: Vickey

You can request that your governing board would "amend" and increase your housing allowance, but remember that a housing allowance is NEVER retroactive!

So, don't do any of the reno until the amendment is done =)

Your tax professional should know how to handle an amended housing allowance as there are some extra steps they will have to take.
