ESignatures Coming to More Mortgages Thanks to Equifax

January 18, 2013

Equifax aids mortgages and ID monitoringIn a partnership with DocuSign, Equifax is making the move to help a vital piece of mortgage paperwork take the leap from paper to digital, offering all the advantages of speed and security. The Internal Revenue Service’s Requests for Transcript of Tax Return form, known as the “4506-T,” which is required for residential and commercial mortgages, will be digitized to cut down on 1-3 days of processing time, in addition to other benefits.

In this partnership, DocuSign’s proprietary tamper-proof, trackable, secure and electronic system is applied during the normal tax transcript ordering process and eliminates the need for the lender to collect the signature separately. Equifax then processes the request and makes sure it goes to the right parties at the IRS so that the expedited work is sent where it needs to go to make mortgages faster and easier.

This is just another way Equifax is making personal finance more secure, in addition to their

ID monitoring services, which include constant tracking of your credit to ensure that you are protected from fraud and identity theft. Equifax offers comprehensive protection for individuals and families, including identity theft insurance.
