Basic Utility Allowance (BUA) – $293

Grant the BUA to clients who incur utility expenses other than for heating or cooling.  This utility allowance is for people billed separately for utilities, such as – cooking fuel, electricity not associated with cooling, water, sewage, garbage, and telephone costs.

If a client is responsible for rent that includes electricity but is billed for their water usage, they would be given the BUA deduction.
