First, we're set up to speak to NY law and we really don't know the laws in the state of Washington.

You also give us no details, so we can't really respond. In the context of a court case, you can ask the court to order the owner to provide details, but that depend on you local courts. Usually an owner would be required to prove what was charged and if it is legal, factor in any government subsidy, and what was paid.

If you don't already, earmark your payments on paper checks, send to the owner by certified mail and make copies. Check for the local statute of limitations.

But the most important thing is to speak with a local attorney that works for tenants (not for landlords and not one that works both sides). If you qualify, check with your local Legal Aid or Legal Services.

But when you ask for help, you must be specific and have evidence. From your post, I can't figure out what the problem is.
