COMPLETE THE RMA FORM
The RMA Form provides information to your mortgage company about your home and financial situation. All of the borrowers on the mortgage must sign the RMA Form. After you have completed and signed the form, print two copies—one for your records and one to send to your mortgage company.
COMPLETE THE APPROPRIATE IRS REQUEST FOR A TAX RETURN TRANSCRIPT OR SUBMIT A SIGNED COPY OF YOUR TAX RETURN FOR THE MOST RECENT TAX YEAR
Borrowers who have filed their annual taxes on a Form 1040, should complete Tax Form 4506T-EZ. Form 4506T-EZ gives permission to your mortgage company to request a copy of the most recent tax return transcript you have filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). After you have completed and signed the appropriate Tax Form, print two copies—one for your records and one to send to your mortgage company.
All other borrowers, including those who have not been required to file taxes because their income may be below the threshold amount required to file taxes or their only source of income may be non-taxable income, should complete Tax Form 4506-T. If you did not file a tax return, Form 4506-T gives permission to your mortgage company to verify that you did not file a tax return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Only one taxpayer is required to sign the Tax Form.
After you have completed and signed the appropriate Tax Form, print two copies—one for your records and one to send to your mortgage company.
