Certificate of Rent Paid - Minnesota

Certificates of Rent Paid (CRP)- What is my obligation as a landlord?

Minnesota Department of Revenue has recently issued a bulletin (3/4/16) concerning the CRPs.

Certificates of Rent Paid (CRP)

All rental property owners, managers, or operators must provide a Certificate of Rent Paid (CRP) to each person who rented from them during the previous year unless they are qualify for the specific exemptions.

CRPs are due January 31

What if my tenant didn't receive a CRP or received an incorrect CRP?

If a landlord refuses to issue a CRP, or fix an incorrect CRP, the tenant may request a Rent Paid Affidavit (RPA) from us. To request an RPA, call the MN Department of Revenue at 651-296-3781 or 1-800-657-9094 (toll-free).  The tenant will need to provide information about themselves and their landlord when requesting an RPA
