Regulatory Compliance Update June 2017

Regulatory Compliance Update

By: Hickman Beckner, Vice President

There was little regulatory activity in May. There is one IRS change that Shaw will have to make changes for in Commercial and Retail.

The IRS has published their update for the 2017 Tax Year forms:

1042-S added requirement for a Unique Identification Number (UIN) to be assigned to each 1042-S form submitted. This number must be numeric, 10 digits, must be unique to each form, and must not be the recipient’s Tax ID or foreign taxpayer identification number. The UIN will go in a new box on the form.

1098-Mortgage Interest added a new box for the number of properties that secure the mortgage being reported. The new information will go in Box 10. There is a new legend on the form:

The information in boxes 1 through 10 is important tax information and is being furnished to the Internal Revenue Service. If you are required to file a return, a negligence penalty or other sanction may be imposed on you if the IRS determines that an underpayment of tax results because you overstated a deduction for this mortgage interest or for these points, reported in boxes 1 and 6; or because you didn’t report the refund of interest (box 4); or because you claimed a non-deductible item.

Significant Dates:

June 8, 2017 – Comments due on CFPB’s request for information about the consumer credit card market.

July 10, 2017 – Comments due on CFPB’s plan to determine the effectiveness of the new Mortgage Servicing regulations.

October 19, 2017 – Effective date for CFPB’s interpretive ruling dealing with borrowers in bankruptcy. The CFBP has created a “safe harbor” for sending statement to borrowers that have declared bankruptcy.

Emerging Legislation:
