Fannie Makes Major Self-Employed Income Calculation Effective Feb 1

OK this is one that would be easy to glaze over but it is MAJOR and a need to know!


Fannie's new Self-Employed Income Calculation goes into effect with originations of 2/1/2016.   They originally were going to roll it out on 4/1/2015 but then delayed it at the last minute until Feb 1, 2016.    With these changes, when using K-1 Income (for a self-employed borrower that reports with a 1065-Partnership or a 1120 (Corporation), a lender is required to obtain the most two years using business income to qualify. That in itself is not a major change.   However, lenders may only now use Business Income when there is a history of income distribution to the borrower that is consistent with the level being used to qualify.


While the above sentence seems fairly "boring", it is actually a huge move (and typically not for the good).    In the past, lenders would take the Gross Income, Subtract the Expenses, Add back in Depreciation and/or Amortization write offs and that should line up to the K1 amount on line 1.    Lenders must now calculate effective income for Self- Employed Borrowers in a totally different way in requiring that lender look at income distribution, adequate liquidity and sales/earning trends in the equation of income.  In many cases, this will reduce the effective income that can be used by 25-100%. 


It is vital, imperative and urgent that all Tax Returns be reviewed by an experienced loan originator (like myself) upfront.  Do NOT allow inexperienced loan officers to practice on your clients.    You will have loans blow up with this new guideline.   Let us know how we can help NOW verses later.
