FHA Docs, Certain IRS Forms to be E-Signed in 2012
November 18, 2011
The FHA and the Internal Revenue Service are working on implementing electronic signatures in loan documents and certain federal tax forms in 2012. In a recent letter to members, David Stevens, president and chief executive officer of the Mortgage Bankers Association, said the trade group has been working with both agencies for the past 18 months to allow the use of e-signatures on FHA loan documents and to automate the IRS Form 4506-T process as early as next year. Form 4506-T is a request for a transcript of a filers tax return.
