  2. 2. MISMO Standards• Logical Data Dictionary (LDD) – Over 5,000 data points and enumerations (lists of values), with business definitions agreed-upon by industry participants – Workgroups vet data points and definitions they need for their business exchanges – Core Data Structures reviews proposed data points against existing LDD• Version 3 -- XML Schema – Reference Model sets the structure and relationships for all those data points – Extensible – business partners can add their own custom data 2

  5. 5. Standards vs. Specifications• MISMO standards – Openly created and openly available – Developed by industry consensus – Common language – Extensible• Regulatory reporting specifications – Usually more “closed” – Created by regulators or private industry groups – Usually not aligned with existing open standards – Data quality is compromised – Cost impact 5
  6. 6. Industry Adoption• Early days – mostly front-end services: tax, title, flood, MI – request/response transactions• Extended into Origination, Underwriting, Secondary delivery and Servicing setup• Now mandated by FHFA for Fannie & Freddie:• UMDP: Uniform Mortgage Data Program – ULDD: Uniform Loan Delivery Dataset – UAD: Uniform Appraisal Dataset 6

  17. 17. Market Problem• Traditionally the IRS Return and Income Verification Services (RAIVS) team does not allow the use of electronic signature on its Form 4506-T as an alternative to ink signatures.• Electronic commerce is enjoying rapid adoption across many sectors, in both business and government transactions.• Methods for initiating, completing and recording electronic signatures and records are expanding as demand increases, with many technologies to choose from in the market.• Due to current economic conditions, especially in the mortgage industry, and increased regulations, this type of electronic processing can be leveraged to solve a widely recognized efficiency concern.

Industry LeadershipEquifax & DocuSign• Championing industry enhancements• Defining and aligning policies, standards, and rules• Identifying data stakeholders and their goals• Communicating with accountability to stakeholders• Providing mechanisms for review and issue resolution Policy Data Quality & Strategy Management
  19. 19. Proof of Concept• Equifax and DocuSign have partnered with the IRS to initiate a small-scale, limited-scope experiment involving the submission of electronically signed forms to the IRS through a trusted third party• This pilot would enhance the IVES program by allowing either a “wet” ink or electronic signature to be used by taxpayers on a Form 4506-T
  20. 20. IRS Requirements• Support the electronic filing goals of the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (RRA 98) by enabling electronic signature technologies• Comply with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act• Protect citizen rights and privacy, limit burden, and promote broad acceptance of electronic commerce• Use technologies and processes that facilitate electronic filing, payment, and communication without relying on paper-based signatures• Replace paper transactions with electronic methods that are more accurate and less expensive to process• Have security appropriate for the level of risk• Are based as much as practicable on established laws and existing frameworks, including time-tested industry practices
  21. 21. eSignature Objectives• Require no changes to IRS policy or procedure• Require no changes to trusted third party relationships• Test the effect of electronic signing on the Taxpayer experience• Improve Taxpayer privacy over current levels• Reduce 4506-T rejection rates from current IRS levels• Improve data integrity and security• Test the ability of electronic processing to solve a widely recognized efficiency concern within the IRS
  22. 22. Value Proposition• Electronic signature acceptance by the IRS on Form 4506-T: – Promotes use of tax transcripts – Reduces lost paperwork – Minimizes signature fraud – Streamlines processes – Lowers costs
