Why are there up to 13 months of tax information provided for REMICs?
Payments of Fannie Mae REMICs are made in the month after the accrual period. Therefore, an extra month has been reported to accommodate both cash and accrual basis taxpayers to provide all necessary information required for annual tax reporting.

What is the Real Estate Percentage and why is it calculated?
The Real Estate Percentage represents the amount of the original security balance backed by real estate. On July 1, 2009, Fannie Mae announced that under the Federal Government's Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) it would permit the refinancing of existing Fannie Mae loans with loan-to-value (LTV) ratios of up to 125 percent. We have expanded our investor tax reporting capabilities to include real estate percentage information to appropriately take into account the fact that certain pools may now include high LTV loans.
