Weekend of 10/28/16: Husband is self-employed and shows a huge loss on the family income tax returns. Wife receives an excellent salary allowing them to qualify for an expensive home but for the husbands loss that has to be counted against them.
Not anymore! Now, you can ignore the husbands business losses and just use the wife’s W-2 income to qualify them with a solid conventional home loan. This applies to all co-borrower situations. You do not have to be married to the other borrower to be able to ignore the negative income.
