Who knows really. I know for a fact I make 38k, with the cash deposits I explained even more, and they calculated my income as $200 under, total $34.792! Makes no sense to me, any way I calculate it I know it is more, also if I average last three years tax returns, my this year income and projected income is still higher. I have no idea how they did it but I know they are wrong bc any way I calculate it is 38k. Go figure. I appealed two weeks ago and still waiting for hear back form them.

@Jelly36 - I really think they're playing games with you, because there's no way they can messed that up unless someone with no math skills did the work. I hope your appeal goes well.

But I really wanna start doing more overtime, but I want to wait after they've checked my 6 paystubs. I don't want to go over. I really need to start saving up more money if I do land this apartment.

So my salary looks more like 19k/year now, and my last 6 pay stubs reflects that. However, I also have about 16,XXX in savings. Do you think I'm still eligible?
So they calculate you most recent paystubs and if it reflects 19k you automatically disqualified. If your even $20 over or under your done. But I still recommend you going to your interview and explain your situation. They can give you a employer verification form which basically proves what you make or will be making in the future. You can ask you employer to give you more hours that will bring you back up to 37k. This MAY help.

Make sure they are multiplying your six pay stubs by the correct number. If you get paid TWICE A MONTH they need to multiply by 24. If you get paid EVERY TWO WEEKS they should be multiplying by 26. This seems to be a pretty common mistake. Good luck with your appeal!

Thanks! That is exactly how I calculated it in my appeal. I do have a 2nd (seasonal job), and I guess they counted my seasonal job as it lasts 3 months, instead of 6 months. So I explained it ALL and calculated the right way in my appeal. That is my only explanation on why I think they miscalculated.

Anyway, I just heard back and they are asking me to submit the proof of cash deposits from the seasonal job from Oct-Dec 2016! I explained all the cash deposits from this year Jan - July 2017. I guess they need this to project my cash income for the next 12 months for my seasonal job. I am going to submit this now and explain it and just watch you all - they will now put me OVER income. This is some serious BS.

Something has to be done about Breaking Ground. I'm not going into my details here, but everyone needs to complain to HPD, and go as high as the commissioner, about how the staff is incapable of calculating income correctly.

Hey deslove! so I was not automatically disqualified after meeting with breaking ground today. instead, I was told that this is all monitored by your previous years 1040 which shows my full time earnings of 37k and was told that I still qualify for an apartment. where did you get your information from?

hey Aquarius37! I wasn't disqualified. I was told that my last years 1040 will be reviewed which shows my good earnings of 37k, because that has the highest earning potential. my credit is also very high. so I should still be in the clear right?

It's common sense that if you don't fall between the income range you are disqualified. Just stay on top of it because you may have to appeal. The fact that they didn't deny you on the spot is surprising. But hey, every agency does thing different.
