LoanBeam Tax calculates Qualified Income (QI) from FEDERAL TAX RETURNS.

  • LoanBeam Tax templates are designed to support ONE Individually filed Tax Return or ONE Joint Tax Return.
  • LoanBeam Tax templates are designed to support up to 2 years of tax return

 

Tax Years:

LoanBeam templates are designed to support up to 2 years of tax returns in the following combinations:

  • 2019/2020, 2020/2021
  • You can also upload 2020 alone or 2021 alone
  • If three years are uploaded (19/20/21), LoanBeam will disregard the oldest tax year (19) and only display income for the two most recent years (20/21). 
    • Once you have submitted a LoanBeam application, you are NOT able to remove any processed documents or files associated with that application.
    • Clients who wish to process a 3rd year will need to create TWO LoanBeam applications (2019/2020 combined + 2021 alone)
    • Note: LoanBeam does not allow duplicate Application numbers.  You may need to append the Application ID with a number (-1) or a letter (A) to make your new application submission unique.

 

Borrowers: 

LoanBeam templates are designed to support ONE Individually filed Tax Return or ONE Joint Tax Return.

  • If two sets of individual/joint returns are provided in any combination, you will not have an accurate reading.
  • So, If you have multiple people borrowing (who filed individual returns) you will need to create a separate LoanBeam application for each borrower.
    • If a form 1040 where 'Married Filling Separately (MFS)' is checked (indicates that two people will fill two separate tax returns) LoanBeam will pick up all income from the forms uploaded, but only 1 borrower's name will appear on the summary sheet on standard LB templates. (ref. LBQCST-934)
  • NOTE: LoanBeam does not allow duplicate Application numbers.  You may need to append the Application ID with a number (-1) or a letter (A) to make your new application submission unique.
