Yea but even if that was the case, there was another self employed person on here that has the same issue. Let's say there was a steady increase every year, they would then have to assume that the increase would occur for 2017 and therefore increase this years projection.

I am not self employed, I am an independent contractor. I have both 1099 but also W2 form the seasonal job, so it is mixed income. Both incomes come from the same jobs for the last 3 years. So not sure that rule applies to me. There is an increase this year, yes... so this year I make more then previous years.

But let's just assume the rule does apply to my situation -even if they averaged the last three years and this year income - I still make more this year than what they calculated. The number they came up with blows my mind, I would seriously love to know how they did the calculation.

haha I figured... So nice you guys are with me in this, thank you for helping me to try to figure it out.
I thought of it ALL ALL as well (as you can tell), many things crossed my mind; I did all kinds of calculations, read the guidelines and all.

I know mixed income is tricky to calculate, but I really think I got this and I am right. It's all in the paper, but I guess it's easier for them to just reject it 'because it's complicated' but they could have done better than putting me $200 under, I mean come on

I find that so ridiculous. $200!! Can't you just work some overtime and then submit new stubs? Lol. All you need is a $4 increase in your weekly average. You can do that with just an extra $24 in one week of the 6 stubs.

Mixed income is not at all tricky to calculate, it's just that these people are morons.

Exactly, would be so easy to just do this! It would work and I would totally do that (although hard when you have 10 business days to appeal hah!) but there is no need for it really, because I am few K over, not $200 under

To Jelly 36: I just answered your DM to me, but it's not appearing in my Sent folder, so I'm not sure you got it. It was weird. I couldn't respond directly to your message in the thread, so I created a new one to you, but it's not showing in my Sent folder. If you didn't get it, I'll rewrite it and resend it later this afternoon. I'm going offline now for a while. Reading a great novel to get away from this lottery stuff for a while. It's like a vacation.

Great idea, enjoy your novel. No rush. Never got the DM, but it happened to me once few days ago when I was sending it to you. I logged out, logged in later and then it worked. Thank you!
