Please review the Bulletin for details on the following temporary guidance.
Selling requirements related to:
•Income and employment documentation and verification
•Processing of IRS Form 4506-T
Servicing requirements related to:
•Servicing FHA, VA and RHS mortgages
•Processing of IRS Forms 4506T-EZ and 4506-T
The temporary requirements in Bulletin 2019-1 [PDF] are effective immediately and will automatically terminate once the federal government resumes full operations.
