Nearly every tax professional in the country has received one or more letters in the past year from a mortgage broker or
similar company asking the accountant to “prove self-employment” or similar statements.

Some lenders and brokers have asked for a statement from the CPA verifying the accuracy of the client’s tax returns, or
verifying that any funds used from the client’s business to make a down-payment for a loan will not affect the business.

One message from a broker to a client stated, “Your CPA needs to write a letter stating that any funds used from your
bank account will not affect your business negatively.” The forecasts or projections required for such a statement are, of
course, far beyond the scope of a tax preparation engagement.

The pressure on professionals to help their client can be considerable. Many professionals are informed by brokers that
their client will not qualify for a loan to buy a house, or for a mortgage refinance, unless the accountant provides a letter
to confirm or verify certain types of information about the client.

These letters have one and only one purpose-to transfer liability to the accountant. The letter is not required to issue a mort-
gage, and literally thousands of issues of fraud are occurring from ill used letters that have been scanned by disreputable
brokers and re-worded to fit their use. We have experienced 3 such instances (of which we are aware) in our CPA firm at
Hurst, Jennings & Co in Indiana!

Here is an example of one such letter we received:

   Dear CPA,
   I am a mortgage consultant with [brokerage’s name], and I am assisting Mr. and Mrs. [client’s name] with the
   refinance of their home on [address]. In order to process their loan, the lender requires a verification of the
   accuracy of their tax returns and proof of self-employment in the form of a letter from the borrower’s CPA. I
   would greatly appreciate you helping us with this letter. Below is an example of how the letter should be
   worded on company letterhead:
   [date]

   Re: Mr. and Mrs. [client’s name]:
   My name is [CPA’s name]. I am a CPA (License #12345). I have been asked to provide a letter verifying my
   client [client’s name]’s employment status. Mr. [client’s name] is self-employed and has been filing his tax re-
   turns as self-employed for [XX] years. Mr. [client’s name]’s company is [client’s company name]. Thank you
   for your immediate attention. *

   Sincerely,
   [CPA’s name]

   Please call me if you have any questions or concerns about the purpose of the content of the letter requested.
   Thank you very much.

   Sincerely,
   [name of mortgage consultant]

   AUTHOR’S NOTE: We cannot use letters provided by outsiders. This letter (and similar ones) does not com-
   ply with professional standards or common sense if you wish to protect your license and your practice!

Bob Jennings continued from page 5—

Our liability insurers are very clear and united on the issuance of these letters, whose sole purpose is to pass liability on
to the tax professional: PUSH BACK
Additionally our professional standards under SSARS and SAS clearly delineate when we may issue a report on financial
information.
Camico Insurance suggests the use of this response:
  Dear [Bank]
  You have asked me to provide your bank with certain information on [Client Name] for your use in deciding
  whether to extend credit to [Client Name]. My services to [Client Name] were and remain limited to the prepara-
  tion of [year] federal and state income tax returns from information provided to me by my client. As such, I have
  not performed any procedures or been given any information that would allow me to assist your institution in its
  decision on whether to extend credit to [Client Name]. Specifically, the tax returns were prepared for my client’s
  tax needs, and your request does not fall within the scope of the engagement that I performed for [Client Name].
  Again, as the tax returns are based on information given to me by [Client Name], I have not reviewed, audited,
  or otherwise attempted to verify any of this information. Consequently, I cannot affirm its accuracy or complete-
  ness.
  However, if [Client Name] authorizes me to do so, I can send you a copy of [Client Name]‘s [year] federal [and
  state] [personal, corporate, etc.] income tax returns so that you may compare your records with those in my of-
  fice. If you wish me to do this, please send my firm the enclosed form signed by [Client Name] authorizing me to
  release this information to your bank. However, by providing these returns to you, I am not confirming or in any
  way verifying the accuracy of the information contained in the tax returns.
  If you intend to use or rely on the tax returns I send you, you should perform your own independent procedures
  and tests as you deem necessary for approval of credit. Please call me at [phone number] if you have any ques-
  tions.

  Sincerely, [CPA]
