Ø     If self-employed, copies of past two years Federal Income Tax Returns Form 1040 (some banks may require 3 years)

Ø     Name, account number and outstanding balance of each of your debts (credit cards, car loan, school loan)

Ø     Application deposits if needed (this may be included in the closing costs instead) 

Ø     Information about any assets (property, life insurance, stock) and perhaps copies of the latest statements
