REMN is providing guidance on W-2/1099 and transcript requirements for 2020.
The following policy applies to any loan closing or signing on or after February 1st, 2021:
2020 W-2/1099 Requirements
Federal law requires employers to issue Wage and Tax Statements (W-2) and form 1099-Misc for the previous year to employees/individuals no later than January 31st of the current year (this year is extended to February 1st, as January 31st falls on a Sunday).
Any loan closing or signing on or after February 1st, 2021 will require a 2020 W-2 and/or 1099 form to be submitted for any applicable qualifying income (in addition to any former years that may be required or were already evaluated). In the event a borrower has not received their 2020 W-2/1099, REMN will consider an exception on a case-by-case basis.
2020 W-2/1099 Transcripts (if required)
Unless advised otherwise due to continued COVID restrictions: REMN will order W-2/1099 transcripts when required by program or if selected for random transcript processing. The following dates apply only in the event a transcript is required:
