SettlementOne understands how important underwriting decisions have become to lenders and the critical nature of timely closings. To better assist lenders in streamlining the closing process SettlementOne has implemented a turnkey automated Tax Verification feature. Lenders now have direct access to all necessary applicant tax documentation required for loan approval. With rapid return times on Tax Verification orders, same day decisions are now viable.
