Automating the Mortgage Document Collection Process
Fast, pain-free, mortgage document collection
Streamlining the lending process by automating the mortgage document collection process is a technological breakthrough that more and more borrowers are looking for when they choose their lender. Nonbanks like Quicken Loans (Rocket Mortgage) have already begun capitalizing on the efficiencies and loan file accuracy that these automations provide.
Even Guaranteed Rate, a traditional lender, has really separated themselves and seen their loan volumes soar by embracing and marketing their technology systems.
To help our customers stay competitive with the "Digital Mortgage", we are continuing to build out these data aggregation systems and make them better and more accessible. Floify customers are already using automated asset verification to pull a report directly from a borrower's bank or financial institution with transaction history, deposits and assets.
Now, we are excited to announce that we've integrated with Veri-Tax to automate the retrieval of the tax documents from the IRS that are needed to verify a borrower's income.

Speed up the return of IRS tax documentation
In order to verify that your borrower truly has the necessary income for their loan, underwriters require accurate tax information from the IRS. To facilitate this, a loan officer or coordinator would ask the borrower to sign a 4506-T form that gives the lender permission to get a tax transcript directly from the IRS.
While there is no charge for your lender to request these transcripts from the IRS, it can take several days to weeks to get the transcripts mailed back to the lender. Through our integration with Veri-Tax, we are able to speed this up and shave days off the process. The steps are:
- Lender adds an income verification request to a loan flow. A pre-filled 4506-T will be attached to the request.
- Borrower download and signs the 4506-T, then uploads it to Floify's yellow bucket.
- Lender reviews the 4506-T in Floify and if properly completed, accepts doc.
- Floify submits the request to the IRS via Veri-Tax integration and returns tax transcripts in about 3 business days.
The great part of the income verification integration is that not only can lenders save time, but the loan file and all of it's corresponding documents stay well organized within Floify. This lets lenders, borrowers, and other loan stakeholders know exactly where the loan is in the process, and exactly when the tax transcripts have been returned.
As the mortgage origination landscape continues to shift towards more automated processes, these direct integrations will give Floify customers the ability to stay relevant, competitive, and cutting-edge for their borrowers. In turn, the efficiency and accuracy of these technologies will improve the integrity of the loan file and reduce the overall risk to mortgage companies.
