Thanks to the people who contacted us about our SBA Form 4506-T eAlert. In response to several requests, we’re providing the IRS Signature Title List.


SBA’s updated SOP 50 10 5 (J), takes effect January 1, 2018, and incorporates regulation changes and clarifies rules for the 7(a) and 504 Loan Programs. Additionally, general and editorial changes were made throughout. You’re encouraged to read the new SOP in its entirety before it takes effect. We’ll be highlighting and commenting on sections of the SOP from our perspective in a series of eBulletins. Check out these and other JRB eBulletins in our Archives!
