Income Limitations:

Yes, based on Compliance Income (including household income) Income limits from HUD 2022 100% AMI guidelines Household Income: Count everyone who will live in the home, adults and children. That includes the income of non-MCC applicants who will reside in the property. However, do not include: (1) dependents that are claimed on tax returns but who will not permanently reside in the home the majority of the time and (2) co-signers. A cosigner’s income is not considered for program purposes, tax returns are not required. __________________________________________________________ Compliance Income: It’s important that any gross monthly income not included for credit underwriting purposes be included in determining gross monthly income for program calculation of income. So credit qualifying income can never exceed program qualifying income.
