Do I need to report any program funds received in my taxes?

Assistance payments made directly to tenants do not count as taxable income.

Assistance payments to landlords are considered taxable income. Per federal guidelines for Emergency Rental Assistance funding, Texas Rent Relief will send a completed IRS Form 1099-MISC to all landlords who received at least $600 in assistance from the program by the required IRS deadline.
