IRS Processing Delays to Impact Tax Transcript

Due to the lingering effects of COVID-19, the IRS continues to experience processing delays. The IRS is reallocating resources among the three processing locations. This will temporarily cause a delay in processing all 4506-C Tax Transcript submissions over the next thirty business days. This also means tax transcript order delivery, including IRS Tax Transcript Fulfillment Service order delivery, will be delayed.

As an alternative, the requirement for 4506-C results will not be required, regardless of the income type, when all of the following requirements have been met:

  • Borrower-obtained tax return transcripts for applicable years, and
  • Bank account statement(s) reflecting amount received from or paid to the IRS that aligns with amounts reflected on the borrower’s tax return(s) (if two years of tax returns are required, then bank statements for the corresponding tax years are required). The information reflected on a bank statement is subject to standard asset review requirements. The IRS printout “Where’s My Refund” or Record of Account confirming refund or payment will also be acceptable in lieu of bank statements.
