If the Grantor is married and has filed jointly, the Last Name, First Name and Middle Initial, and Social Security Number of the Spouse must be entered across the cells in the second row. If the Grantor has not filed jointly, this row may be left blank.

Just below this table will be a statement with a checkbox. If the Grantor does not want his or her Representative to receive copies of notices or communications from the I.R.S. or Idaho Tax Commission, then mark this checkbox. If the Representative may receive such items regarding the Grantor, then leave this check box unmarked.
