A Landlord can either provide a W9 to the renter applicant or register as a County vendor at: a Maricopa County Vendor at: https://azdom-vss-ext.hostams.com/PRDVSS2X1/Advantage4. W9s and/or registration as a County vendor is required for a CCRA payment to be made to a Landlord. Maricopa County is issuing a payment (income) to a landlord, which according to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires the County to provide the Landlord with a 1099 Form. The W9 and/or registration as a County vendor provides the detailed information (including Social Security Number and/or Employer Identification Number) to ensure the landlord is a valid entity and allows checks to be issued to the Landlord.
The Landlord Verification Form is required as it validates from the landlord which months’ rent are owed and/or due from the tenant as well as provides the Landlord’s contact information and payment address.
If you have already completed a Landlord Verification Form for a tenant once before, and they are requesting you to do it again this is due to them requesting an additional assistance payment.

However, the W9 and/or vendor registration is not required again as you have already received payment from Maricopa County, and as such are a registered vendor.
The Landlord Verification Form must still be completed for each individual tenant requesting CCRA. This form verifies which months’ rent is owed and/or due. If the tenant is approved for CCRA, vendor registration will be verified during the payment process.

A Landlord who wants to receive payments via EFT must register themselves as a Maricopa County Vendor at: https://azdom-vss-ext.hostams.com/PRDVSS2X1/Advantage4. During this registration, bank information will need to be provided. After registration is complete, a $0.00 prenote test will be sent to your bank.

It takes approximately 9 days to complete this test cycle (the account will be on “hold payment” status during the prenote test).
