Hello, I am fiarly new to this form and if possible would like some adivice as to what I should do for you the experts.
I am a self employed General Contractor, I own my own business, I am filing income tax this year for alow 90000 with no deduction(except the ones everybody gets which I think amounts to about 16k), so after starting it on turbo tax I will have to pay 26k in taxes(I am ok with that) my question is, is I havent filed in about 3 years due to the economy and being out of work, and in the past when I did file I had alot of deduction..... so When I file this year for 90k and next year for 90k will I qualify for a mortage.
I am looking to purchage a 500k-600k house if at all possible, or if not I will look in the 350.00-400k range. Based on your experience do you think I will qualify for this amount of mortage and btw I am a first time home buyer (own another home but never obtained a mortgage)
My plan is to take a home equity out on my office(other home) to come up with the down payment on my home.
Do you have any suggestions when I file my income tax?
Also my credit is a 680transunion, and substantially lower on the other two(80+ inquires) hoping they will fall off by the time I buy my house.

Credit One Bank 300/200

Even if no tax was owed, you still will need to file for previous years. I'd do that now.
When your lender looks at your income, they'll look at your net income only on your Sch. C (assuming you are a 1099er vs. paying yourself a paycheck) instead of factoring in the gross. Be careful of how you file. Your lender will also look at the prev. year at least.
Not sure on the DTI. Seems like it could be too high on the $500k range.
Pay off the balances ASAP.
ETA...I'd delay the car purchase until after the mortgage closing.

thanks so do I need quarterly profit and loss statements?
I'm a biz owner as well and applied for and received a loan 12/2010 and 1/2011 respectively. My lender asked for a current balance sheet and P&L annual statements for the prev. 2 years (2009 and 2010) and asked for an estimated P&L for 2011. I had shown a large loss for 2009 on my Sch. C but large gains for 2010 and they wanted a forecast of where things were going with an explanation of the turnaround.

also why should i delay the car purchase?
The main reason is that it'll cut into your DTI if you finance the car and that'll for sure lower your purchasing power. Depending on when you buy, your FICO score could still see some damage when you apply for the mortgage. IME, new accounts dinged me for up to a year.
