Qualifying income for W-2 employee that owns a business?I am a W-2 employee and I own my own business that I also pay myself as an employee and issue a W-2 for myself. My question is how do I need to report my income from my business to use it to qualify for a mortgage? Will the combined W-2's from my employer and what I pay myself be used or will my tax returns be used? What is the best way for a person in my situation to provide a lender income verification? I can not qualify for the house that I want solely on my employers income. How should I work my business finances to make up the difference?July 21 2012 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
