Tis the season! Tax season, that is. A handful of tenants have already reached out to us for information on receiving a 2016 rent certificate and we wanted to be sure all of our tenants were aware of our policy and procedure. If you signed a lease with our agency and were not transferred to our management company, this process is outlined in the rules and regulations addendum under “1.43 Homestead Credits.”
Because we receive so many requests and are not always able to fill the forms out on demand, our policy requires tenants to submit the form to our office with their personal information filled in. DO NOT fill in your social security number for your security. We are not responsible for the consequences that may arise from an unsecured SSN and strongly advise tenants to keep that blank.
Once you submit the form to our office, we will complete the landlord portion within 7 days and notify you when you can come pick it up. If you would prefer to have it mailed, please provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
Please note that the Wisconsin Department of Revenue will not accept any photocopies or forms using correction tape/fluid. We cannot send the forms to you electronically, as the State requires the original signature on the form.
For your convenience, we have linked the form here. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
