Thank you for the link, Randy - I did locate that after I posted that this morning - I should've deleted my post.
The earlier question was: If we have a document from the USPS showing the date and time the document was delivered but we don't have a signed Notice to Borrower or a signed certified mail receipt are we in compliance?
To which Al replied that "IRS has stated that the document from the USPS shows the date and time the envelope was delivered and has claimed that is not enough on tax matters."
We are looking at utilizing the electronic receipt option USPS is giving for certified mail, and one of the questions someone raised is - will that be acceptable if a rule requires certified mail because there is a disclaimer in the paper work rec'd from USPS indicating that they aren't responsible for acceptance of this method. So, I was asked to see what the experience of other banks has been (although I don't think it really matters because the issue comes down to whether or not a court will accept this electronic method vs the antiquated method, and it appears to be jurisdictional). At any rate...I came across this thread and was curious as to read that item from IRS if it was still available - mainly to just see what it said just in case it touched on this.
