Fuel Cost Adjustment – DOUBLE COLLECTION

Postby henryblack » Tue Oct 09, 2018 3:51 am

Fuel Cost Adjustments are already a part of MBR and shown on line 7 of Part B of Form RN-26 and included in MBR shown on line 9 of form RN-26. Line 15 in part C of RN-26 require Fuel Cost Adjustments to be broken out and stated separately from MCR for the first of the two years in biennial period. Line 9 of RN26s.1 similarly requires fuel cost adjustment for second of the two years in the biennia1 periods to be shown and added.

I have checked these forms for several of prior biennial periods and found that the amounts shown on line 15 of RN-26 and line 9 of RN-26s.1 were always 0 (zero) as Fuel Cost Adjustments were already a part of MBR. For 2008-09 biennial period, however, I find that the amounts shown on these lines have amounts repeated from line 9 of RN-26 and are being added on top of MBR which already includes Fuel Cost Adjustments resulting in double collection of fuel costs adjustment. There is no significant change in the structure of the forms from prior periods. Are there any changes in DHCR policy or are there any other circumstances or particular scenarios which would warrant this double collection of Fuel Cost Adjustments? Quick answers are not available from either DHCR or the landlord’s office.

Thanks in advance.

Seems the spammers from Vietnam are getting trickier these days. This post (now locked) is a dupe from 2008. You can see the original at http://tenant.net/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6922

But we check every new forum member and use a variety of tools to see if they are legitimate (tenants seeking advice) or spammers. In this case the IP was from Vietnam and appeared on various Spam lists. What they normally do is come back at a later time and add a link to some other site.
