- Current year taxes
- Delinquent prior year taxes
Tax Line set-up and tax audit
Tax Line Set-Up (TLS) and Tax Audit services help your organization stay in compliance with state and federal requirements and better prepare you for audits. Discrepancies are identified and corrected allowing information to stay up to date.
- Tax Line Set-up processes your input files and transmits tax line data electronically to your servicing system

Current Asset Risk Evaluation (C.A.R.E.) Tool

Using the borrower name and property address your portfolio can be searched against our extensive database, including property tax information gathered from over 25,000 tax collecting agencies, to provide current property tax payment status available for your loans. Become aware of potential hidden risks to prevent future losses and make sound decisions when acquiring or selling a loan portfolio.
The following information is reported when available to help you assess the current risk of your portfolio:
- Tax collecting agency details including parcel number(s), state code, agency name and payee number
