Veri-Tax and Verification Bureau Adopt Adobe EchoSign to Launch IRS Form 4506-T E-Signature Solution

The IRS' approval of electronic signatures on income verification requests and Veri-Tax's newly designed e-signature solution with Adobe EchoSign platform allow for a truly paperless loan origination process

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Veri-Tax, LLC, the leading provider of verification and fraud management products, and its subsidiary, Verification Bureau, LLC, have launched a Form 4506-T electronic signature solution using the EchoSign platform by Adobe in support of the IRS' commitment to accept electronic signatures on income verification requests beginning today. Once received and approved by the IRS for processing, an electronically signed Form 4506-T releases a taxpayer's previous years' income tax transcripts from the IRS to an authorized third party. This process is considered the most secure method of verifying a borrower's income during the loan origination process. Until now, the Form 4506-T was the only mortgage loan document still requiring a handwritten signature.

Veri-Tax and Verification Bureau have collaborated with Adobe, the leading electronic signature provider, to integrate Adobe EchoSign into Form 4506-T loan documents. After a lender or mortgage originator creates a tax transcript request, Veri-Tax facilitates the e-signature process directly with the borrower. This allows the borrower to validate his or her information before submitting the 4506–T to the IRS, thus minimizing IRS rejection rates and saving time in the income verification process—factors that will improve the borrower experience and ultimately lead to greater customer satisfaction. "With Adobe's high level of support and functionality, we are confident we chose the best partner to successfully provide 4506-T e-sign functionality to the verification market," said Veri-Tax Senior Director of Product Management Maria Kirgan.

Veri-Tax and Verification Bureau's e-signature solution also reduces signature forgery, lost paperwork, and distorted data, problems that a paper-based process can pose when the 4506-T is scanned, uploaded, faxed, or sent though the mail. Additionally, Veri-Tax and Verification Bureau will accept electronic signatures on the Form 4506-T from other e-sign vendors that adhere to the IRS' strict e-sign compliance guidelines.

"We anticipated releasing our 4506-T electronic signature option even before the IRS announced the e-sign pilot last year," said Veri-Tax President Michael Chon. "Today, a process that takes lenders a few days to complete can now be completed within hours, helping to further streamline the verification process and close loans faster than ever before. The reduced time, effort, and cost savings will truly benefit all parties involved."

The Adobe EchoSign Document API allows customers like Veri-Tax and Verification Bureau to integrate EchoSign's electronic signature functionality into their own applications. "We're excited to collaborate with Veri-Tax and Verification Bureau on this tremendous milestone towards ending the last mile of paper," said Kevin M. Lynch, SVP and GM of Acrobat and Document Services at Adobe. "This will truly provide automation around document workflows and accelerate signing cycles for the fast-paced world of finance."

Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud platforms and applications and that nearly half of large enterprises will have cloud deployments by the end of 2017. The benefits of the cloud may be clear for applications that can tolerate brief periods of downtime, but for critical applications like SQL Server, Oracle and SAP, companies need a strategy for HA and DR protection. While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...
In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.

Disruptive macro trends in technology are impacting and dramatically changing the "art of the possible" relative to supply chain management practices through the innovative use of IoT, cloud, machine learning and Big Data to enable connected ecosystems of engagement. Enterprise informatics can now move beyond point solutions that merely monitor the past and implement integrated enterprise fabrics that enable end-to-end supply chain visibility to improve customer service delivery and optimize sup...
The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what th...

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immed...

Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, will: Explain what policy is; Show how policy should be arc...
Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
Information Technology (IT) service providers have historically struggled between the huge capital expenditure and long development cycles of building their own cloud versus the thin margins and limited flexibility of using public retailers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Wholesale cloud is the game-changing third option between building your own (BYO) c...
