Currently BECU uses Equifax Verification Services to verify Tax Return Transcripts when you apply for certain loans. For reasons that are now clearly obvious, Equifax can't be trusted with ANY financial information. Request BECU protect it's members now by immediately firing/dropping any and all services provided by Equifax and or any entities connected to Equifax. I'm currently in the process of obtaining a loan with BECU and there is no way I will allow Equifax access to any tax related documents.
The form 4506-T is required by law, rules or regulations when applying for some loans. The use of Equifax Verification Services or any company associated with Equifax is NOT required or acceptable for this purpose.
