Landlord Must Give Tax ID Information to Tenant's Guardian
LVT Number: #29789
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. The Jewish Association Serving the Aging (JASA), which was tenant's guardian under Mental Hygiene Law Article 81, signed a settlement agreement with landlord by which landlord agreed to provide JASA with a W-9 tax form containing building ownership information and a taxpayer identification number that would match information in IRS files, so that funds approved by the Special Exit and Prevention Supplement (SEPS) Program could be released to pay tenant's rent arrears.
