Here's the background: FI and I used to share an apartment with some college friends. The apartment was through the school, and the rent was automatically split equally and charged to our student accounts. Cool beans.
FI and I (as well as other roommates throughout 2012) got a fb message. The friend who sent it wants to get a renters rebate. He's the only one who qualifies out of all roommates. I've never heard of this before. Apparently he needs to get certain tax information from us. One of the qualifications is that the total amount of income for EVERYONE in the household needs to be under a certain amount, which I know it is. But I need to give him my tax/income information? Eff that noise.
So, what's the deal with this? Anyone have any additional information about this whole renter's rebate thing? Honestly, I don't feel comfortable giving this type of information to anyone. The fact that he wants to use all of us to get a refund really irks me. Am I being unreasonable here? Am I making too big a deal out of this? What should I do? Thanks!
ETA: I don't know if it matters or not, but FI and I only lived there the first half of 2012. Another 2 roommates joined him for the second half of 2012.
