This message is to serve as a reminder to our clients that it is now mandatory to use the new IRS 4506-T form that went into effect on March 28, 2016. We have seen a number of outdated forms come through our system since that date. Our QC process will catch these items and alert you should the old form still be in use, causing delays in processing.

Additionally, the IRS noted that on some revised forms, the electronic signature is overlapping the attestation information. Since the signature cannot cover other information on the forms, these submissions will also be rejected. “Signature” will be the reason code given in these cases as well.

If you have not already done so, please begin to use the new form immediately. If you have any questions, please contact our customer support line at 866.774.3282.

Thank you for choosing RealQuest.
