Escrow Manager FAQs
Why should I use Escrow Manager?
- Escrow Manager is a comprehensive service that eases the burden of managing escrow funds by allowing you to deposit funds into a single "master" checking account with Individual escrow "sub-accounts" maintained by the bank.
- This eliminates the need to open numerous accounts for each individual escrow deposit and allows you to write checks out of a single "master" checking account.
Is there simplified reporting with Escrow Manager?
- Yes, you will receive a monthly statement, listing all of the activity on the Escrow Manager Master Checking account and a comprehensive, consolidated monthly report that lists all sub-accounts and detailed transaction activity, balance and interest for each account.
- This reduces a great deal of paperwork, assists with accounting and provides a detailed audit trail.
Is IRS reporting provided?
Yes, all IRS reporting and 1099-INT forms will be mailed directly to your clients by the bank.1
