To determine the economic impact of a home loan modification, lenders look at three things: current income, employment history and the possibility of remitting future benefits. Current income is defined as your total monthly income including any alimony, earned benefits, capital gains, child support and mortgage interest. Employment history will include employment details such as length of service and annual base salary, any bonuses or promotions, any commissions paid and longevity of the company that employed you. The third thing is the possibility of remitting future payments including retirement and social security.
If: You didn't sign up online, electronically, by mail or did not receive a monetary payment in 2021 or, You received an automatic payment but it was not the full amount of your economic impact payment. The maximum available credit is $1,100, or $2,000 if married filing joint, plus an additional $500 for every qualifying child. In the case of remittance, the borrower must have access to a bank account that is in good standing with a balance exceeding what is required for an electronic transaction or direct deposit. For any of these cases, there will be a processing charge. However, if you meet the other requirements, the amount you pay will be deductible from your gross income tax return.
If you do qualify for an economic impact payment, the payment amount is reported on the year-end statement. In most cases, it is made directly to the Internal Revenue Service for distribution to the borrowers. If your financial hardship was due to a decrease in your gross income, the taxpayers may also be entitled to an additional tax rebate check. This is based on the difference between the actual value of the property sold and the fair market value used for the federal tax return.
The forms are available for download online and are very simple to complete. The first step in completing the form is to choose whether you want the property transferred electronically through a direct deposit or by regular mail. If the former option is selected, the borrower must follow the directions carefully to ensure that all the necessary tax returns and documentation are received by the IRS for processing. Once the forms are completed, the borrower can send the electronically transferred funds to the IRS for approval and processing.
The next step is to choose how you would like to receive your property's recovery rebate credit. If you choose to utilize the line of credit option, the borrower will receive a debit card and instructions for how to make payments on the card. If you choose to use the fund transfer option, you will simply sign the appropriate forms and submit the forms to the IRS for approval. At the end of the 2021 tax year, the borrower will receive a check in the amount of the loan plus the tax-free interest rate plus the balance of the credit line. If an economic impact payment is included in the package, the check will be sent to the borrower with the tax-free interest plus the tax rebate credit that were calculated based on the amount of the loan plus the . . . . . . balance of the credit line.
It is important to verify that you have received your confirmation from the agency. A full statement should be included with your original filing to ensure that the loan amount is accurate. In order to determine your eligibility for the economic impact payment, you must submit the appropriate forms. Be sure that your state has the correct deadline for filing, and that you provide all necessary documentation when it is time to submit your tax return for filing.
