A quick reminder that if you’re a Minnesota rental property owner; by January 31, 2014, you must provide a Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP) to each person who rented from you in 2013.
Married couples may receive a joint CRP. Unmarried adults each receive their own copy (even if they are roommates).
If you bought or sold a property in 2013, you are still required to provide a CRP for the period of time you owned the building.
If a tenant moved, you must send the CRP to their forwarding address. If you do not have that information, you should send it to their last known address. You must keep a record of this for the tenant until August 15, 2015.
Failure to provide a CRP by the specified deadline can result in a $100 fine per infraction, so it pays to beat the deadline.
