Qualify Without Tax Returns
If you are self-employed, and want to purchase a home, you will be pleased to know that we offer mortgage products that address the unique issues that some self-employed borrowers face. Clients can qualify without the requirements of submitting personal or business tax returns.
How Does it Work?
The client must be self-employed for 2 years or more. Supporting documentation will be required. Qualification can be based on a personal bank account, a business bank account, multiple business bank accounts or a combination of all. The client can use either 12 months or 24 months of bank statements to show qualifiable income.
The underwriter will review the monthly deposits into each bank account. After reviewing the deposits into each account, the underwriter will determine all qualifiable deposits and determine the monthly income. Once the average monthly income for either 12 months or 24 months is determined, the client can move forward in the mortgage process.
