For the past several years I have been the primary wage earner while my husband has been in grad school + Army Reserves. We will be moving to DC this fall, at which time my husband will be active duty Army and the primary wage earner and my income (if any at that point) will be merely supplemental.

So my question is: When completing rental applications, should I use my income records or my husband's? Option 3 would be to attach records to the application that will indicate what our future situation will be, including his estimated income & expected housing allowance.

My advice: Indicate what your income WILL be and enclose documentation. When I moved to the area from out of state, I used my offer letter from the job I was moving to in this fashion. I had no troubles.
