Avoid common tax-time missteps made by self-employed home buyers.

Self-employed borrowers have a notoriously hard time verifying employment and documenting income. Tax time is a great time to organize your documents, so you’ll have them ready when it’s time to apply for a mortgage.

Here are some of the more common items you may need

  • Tax Returns (1040 and 1120 if applicable)

  • 1099s for any reported income

  • Business accounting and expense records

  • Bank statements

  • Deposit receipts

If you are self-employed and planning to buy or refinance a house in 2021, it’s a good idea to talk to your loan officer BEFORE you file your 2020 taxes.
