On March 22, 2019, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that it had filed charges involving allegedly fraudulent submissions of SBA loan applications and guarantee repurchase requests.  NAGGL's CEO, Tony Wilkinson, provided the following statement on this matter:  

The charges described in the recent DOJ press release, if proven, are serious violations of existing law and are inconsistent with the principles of program integrity and ethical behavior that NAGGL has always championed.  NAGGL does not condone any misconduct, let alone the kind alleged in the release, and we fully support the efforts of government agencies and law enforcement authorities to uphold the laws and standards of the SBA lending programs.  Any one actor operating outside the lines jeopardizes the 7(a) loan program's integrity and the hundreds of thousands of small business jobs created by 7(a) lending every year.

SBA OIG issues Audit of SBA's Controls over 7(a) Loans Sold on the Secondary Market

SBA's Inspector General released the results of an audit of SBA's controls over loans sold on the secondary market, concluding that "internal controls related to the sale of loans into the secondary market and SBA’s reviews for lender compliance on defaulted loans were generally effective" and made 5 recommendations to the agency for improvement to their controls in order to further mitigate risk of loss on sold loans.

Revised IRS Form 4506-T and Updated Internal Revenue Service (IRS) contact information

SBA has alerted lenders via Information Notice 5000-19005 that a new IRS Form 4506-T must be used effective immediately. 

The Notice also describes the IRS' new practice of redacting "personally identifiable information", currently only on individual tax transcripts, i.e. series Form 1040 transcripts. A taxpayer's SSN can no longer be used as a tracking number by a third-party transcript requester. Third-parties can now use a 10-digit a Customer File Number, which can be entered on Line 5b of Form 4506-T.

Today the agency published Information Notice 5000-19004 outlining the policy changes included in SOP 50 10 5(K) to be effective on April 1.  There are several important clarifications about core policies, including credit elsewhere, equity injection, changes of ownership, as well as adding new requirements for items like a borrower certification regarding leasing.  

Summary analysis >


On December 21, President Trump signed into law H.R. 6347, the 7(a) Real Estate Harmonization Act. With no effective date specified in the bill, it is NAGGL’s belief that the law took effect immediately upon the president's signature. SBA is working to release a Notice; in the meantime, because this is a law, lenders may use the higher appraisal threshold amount of $500,000, making sure to fully document the file as to why the higher threshold is being used.
