I have a question about this.

I'm self employed (I'm a writer) and my income varies from year to year. My 2011 income fits the requirements. But I won't get my income papers from my agent for 2012 until later this month (around the 30th), and the applications are due the 30th. I honestly have no clue if my 2012 income fits the requirements (it'll be close, but it could be a little too high, possibly). So I'm note entirely sure what to do? Should I apply with my 2011 income since I won't know my 2012 income until this application is already due?

Also, if I happen to get my application drawn and get in the apartment, what happens with income each year? As I said, mine can vary a lot depending on the number of books sold/finished/released in a year. Will they check in every year? And if I make more than the limits one year, do I have to leave?

Does anyone know?

It's a nice neighborhood so go for it if you can. But Brian, they are VERY particular about income and make no exceptions for an income a penny over the max.

Apply with numbers that fit the criterion, use the 2011 numbers.
The only ones that count are the ones at the time of the interview by which time you will know whether or not you qualify based on 2012 as well.

Once you are in you will not have to leave if you have a particularly good year.

Worth a shot.
