Does getting a loan result in your employment info showing up on a credit report?

Is there any way of getting a loan or mortgage but avoiding reporting your employer?
Solution:
Most banks want to know you're getting paid from somewhere to pay off the loan, so this info (in many cases) may not be omitted. Though, just to reassure you that taking a loan won't necessarily "expose" you for OE, unless your employer does periodic credit checks on you. Some options:...

Some options: - Say your employer is your LLC - Put self employed on the loan and show the first page of 2022 tax return

Data Point: Js may show up on credit report when used for applying for mortgage. Tho dates for the J do not show up on credit report

That's not the conclusion you should be drawing You use the tax returns that has your LLC included When you pay yourself a salary you're giving yourself a w2

Lenders don't care how many J's you have. You only need to disclose a source of income to them if you're claiming that source as part of your income. Say your income is $100k from J1 Your income from J2 is also $100k Your total income is $200k When applying for a loan, if you say your income is $200k, then you should disclose both jobs and provide proof. If you say say you only have 1J, then you need to say your income is $100. But again, lenders don't care how many Js you have, and sure as hell aren't going to tell your Js about it

i've heard it can accidentally leak out. Like lender calls J1 confirming u employed there and then offhandedly mentions J2

Just FYI: your employer(s) can show up on a credit report.

You really want to qualify for things with one J income

Just got another car loan, It does show up, no one ever seems to verify. At this point if you want to drop a prestigious company name on the application to get it into the credit report you can probably do so
