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]
