No MCI Rent Hike for Sales Tax or Clerical Expenses
LVT Number: #20501
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on facade, roof, and apartment window installations. The DRA ruled for landlord but disallowed certain costs, including sales tax. Landlord appealed and lost. Sales tax, along with clerical and project accounting, telephones, messengers, overnight delivery services, blueprinting, parking, gas, tolls, secretarial services, labor foreman, final cleaning, and AIC insurance aren't permitted expenses in connection with MCI costs.
