NOT FOR PUBLICATION


MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

TOWNES, United States District Judge:

Plaintiff Louis Peralte filed this pro se action on December 20, 2012, ostensibly under the Civil Rights Act, the Fair Housing Act; and the Equal Credit and Opportunity Act. He has not paid me filing fee. Under 28 U.S.C. § 1914, the filing fee to commence a civil action is $350. Under 28 U.S.C, § 1915, the Court may waive the filing fee Upon finding a plaintiff indigent. Plaintiff filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis, but the application is incomplete.

Plaintiff affirms that he has zero income from all sources. The second page of his ' application is signed, but each question is left blank. Plaintiff has not indicated the amount of money held in bank accounts or the value of arty personal or real property.

The Court is unable to determine from plaintiffs incomplete financial declaration whether he is entitled to proceed in forma pauperis. Accordingly, the Court directs plaintiff to submit a completed application to proceed in forma pauperis within 14 days from the date of this Order or to pay the $350 filing fee to the Clerk of Court of the Eastern District of New York within 14 days from the date of this Order. If Plaintiff fails to submit a Request to Proceed In Forma Pauperis application or fails to remit the filing fee within the time allowed, the action shall be dismissed without prejudice.

SO ORDERED.
