According to FBI statistics, over 60% of all mortgage fraud includes income or identity misrepresentations. To combat this, lenders use tools available from the IRS to verify a borrower’s income. The IRS 4506-T has become a requirement for virtually all mortgage originations and loan modifications.
Until recently, the 4506-T was the only document in a mortgage disclosure package that had to be manually signed, leading to disjointed processing and workflows. Working on paper, lenders routinely suffered 3-5 days waiting for the document to be signed and returned. New IRS guidelines allow the 4506-T to be signed electronically, shaving several days off the process. eLynx’s basic e4506-T service fully meets all IRS requirements from initial authentication and consent, to maintaining a tamper proof seal and audit trail of the transaction.
While electronically signing a 4506-T has many tangible benefits, lenders can further simplify their income verification process by leveraging existing electronic methods. Tired of handling 4506-Ts returned on paper and scanning them for your loan folder? Overwhelmed with having to order income verification from third parties and managing the results manually? eLynx’s premium
