NEW! Income Tax Return Verifications Give You CONFIRMED Income and Employment Information Directly from the IRS

We are pleased to announce the release of our new IRS Income Tax Return Verification Service.  This service provides verified income and W2 information directly from the IRS.   

Who Would Benefit From This Service?
Property Managers:  Provides you with verified income information directly from the IRS for your potential tenants.

HR Managers:  Provides IRS verified salary and employment history information in making upper management hiring decisions.

Mortgage Lenders:  Verified income information for the underwriting process.

Why Go Beyond a Standard Employment Verification?
Because direct IRS information...
  •    Strengthens due diligence in processes.
  •  Mitigates fraud in instances of false Social Security Number information.
  •    Provides employers with factual salary history.
  •    Helps landlords make secure rental decisions as it provides a verified income source. 

How Does it Work?
A 4506T (Click here to see a sample form) request form will need to be filled out and signed by the applicant for each year of tax return information to be released. This service will return information in relation to the following tax filings: (1040, 1065, 1120, 1120A, 1120H, 1120L, 11205) and Income (W2, 1099, 1098 series and 5498 series).

What's the Turn-around-time?
Once the signed authorization is submitted to SafeScreener, please allow approximately two business days for IRS to process the request. After two business days, SafeScreener will provide you with the results of the search. (Clickhere to view a sample return or here to view a sample W2.)
