A rent receipt benefits both the landlord and the tenant by showing what was paid, when it was paid, and to whom it was paid. Some states require you to provide a receipt anytime the tenant asks for one. If you need to write out a receipt, include all the essential information that makes a receipt valid. Always give one copy to the tenant and keep a copy for your business records.
