What kind of liability would I have to let a sublet tenant apply for a homestead credit?I have a tenant that rents a room to her mother. The mother wants to apply for a tax credit, called the Wisconsin Homestead Credit. The mother is not on the lease but pays a portion of the rent to the daughter that pays us the total. As landlords we would have to sign the credit form confirming her portion of the rent. Would this give the mother any legal standing as related to the lease?
