Being self-employed it can be difficult to obtain a mortgage. The facts are that most self-employed would agree that their tax returns don't really show their true income as many tend to write off many expenses over that a W-2 wage earner. Regardless of what you make for income, tax write-offs and deductions reduce your taxable income that can affect your debt-to-income ratios. As a result, your net taxable income (after deductions) may disqualify you for a traditional mortgage for purchasing and/or refinancing !

Evolution of Bank Statement Mortgage LoansAfter the crash of the housing market in 2008, the federal government took custodianship over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two largest lenders in the country. They were so large that if they failed, they would put thousands of homeowners out on the street, so the government stepped in While this led to many of the great loan programs that we have today, including HARP and FHA that let homeowners recover from being underwater or buy a home with less money down, they also made it far more difficult for business owners and self-employed people to buy a home. Entrepreneurs and self-employed workers were now required to prove their income by what they pay in taxes, not what they made. This has kept everyone from doctors and lawyers to real estate agents and web designers from buying a home, as they are forced to write off business expenses merely to keep their companies or practices profitable. This shows as less income made for taxes but doesn't show the true income that they make. This means that they can't buy a home that is on the proper level to what they make but instead must settle for less home or continue to rent
