If tax returns are specified in the screening packet or other condo documents, the buyer can refuse to show, but the association could deny the application, based on non-compliance with their rules.
Are their rules lawful? This is an attorney question.

A condo association or HOA can make, enforce, implement all kinds of rules and regulations in regards to the operating of the community and process for transferring, leasing of individual units therein.

Typically these rules and regulations are to benefit the community as a whole.

Yes, the can refuse to approve a sale in the event of non-compliance.

An attorney may be able to determine if the action was lawful.

Having a resource to help with HOA information and documents makes life easier for real estate agents. Recently, when selling a home in Ohio, Association Online provided me with all the HOA details for the listing, and then provided all the documents - by-laws, financial statements, covenants, etc. They made sure the package was complete, making my work easier. Their web site is well organized and very easy to use - http://www.associationonline.com . Call their team of experts – they are great to work with (970-226-1324).

A sale usually is not refused for not providing one type of document. There are always exceptions for screening purposes. A foreign buyer will not be able to provide tax returns and it doesn't mean he won't be approved. All HOA's are different, but in this case buyer has to justify why he doesn't want to present tax returns or try to talk to the management to find an alternative. The HOA has the final word in this and a sale is refused because the screening itself was negative, not because one document was missing.

If you need help just contact me.

Only if their condominium documents give them that right and they've applied this screening to all other prospective tenants without exception. That being said I'm not a lawyer and the tenant should contact an attorney for legal advice.
