I am trying to provide my mortgage company with business

Customer Question

hi- I am trying to provide my mortgage company with business income info from my business to show my income. I only take a draw- no pay check. How should this be showing up on my P&L statements?

Hi,

...

If your are "self-employed," (partner, sole proprietor, LLC taxed as a partnership) then the PROFITS are what is available to you.

...

The draws are just your using of that profit (stays as part of your basis in the entity if you don't pull it out).

...

You documentation of that IS your Schedule C (shows up on business income or loss) ,line 12, of the 1040 if you're a sole proprietor or single member LLC.

...

If you're a partner the K-1 from the partnership flows to Schedule E and then line 17 of the tax return.

...

If you're an S-Corp shareholder/employee then you'll have your W-2 AND the K-1 with any incremental profit from the 1120-S.

...

It sounds like you're probably a sole proprietor, LLC member, or partner. And for those it's simple; your year end profit IS the number ... and the "draws" are your USING of that profit (OR pulling equity or prior accumulate profit, in any year that you're NOT profitable).

...

You should also be aware that the mortgage underwriter (in that scenario) where you're a "self employed" person (and again that's a specific term, in tax lingo ... means you're not an employee of your company) should allow you to add-back any non-cash items that LOWERED that profit like depreciation.

...

Let me know if you have questions

Thanks for the help....so my 2014 taxes show 143,000 for net profit on my schedule C. I would use that as income correct?
Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.

That's right.

...

That net profit will flow from the schedule C to line 12 (Business income of loss) on the 1040.

...

I hope this has all helped
