These people are trained to look for hidden income. They need to give the apartments to people earning within the income brackets. Even $50 over or under the brackets will get you disqualified. If you're getting paid in cash, there's no way to be sure of what you're earning. They must rely on your word.

And, truthfully, most people do not declare cash earnings. I'm not trying to cast any aspersions on you at all. But many types of shady occupations depend on cash transactions for secrecy. That's just the way the world works, unfortunately.

You will be competing with applicants who have regular jobs and pay stubs from corporations or nonprofits or the city of New York, and it's just easier to take someone like that.[/quote]

I see where you are coming from. I already work part time with bi-weekly paystubs, and after adding the extra cash I will be over by $950, but it will be on my tax return eventually so I can't hide it. I guess I'm screwed either way.

If they call you for an interview, bring all the documents requested, and don't volunteer any information until asked. Every lottery is a bit different. Maybe you'll be lucky and get a person who accepts the babysitting money for what it is.

I really appreciate your input. I hope I get lucky, or else it goes to someone who needs it more.

They are probably waiting for 2017 to ask for 2016 tax return

Not true. If you read the guidelines, you'll see how this tax issue is handled. You could theoretically have till next October to show a 2016 return if you file for an extension.

Nope, this looks like another Breaking Ground lottery.
