Re: Nice while it lasted - AMEX FR!

I'm a bit curious as to what year's taxes Amex uses in their determination of income. I only made $20k "on paper" in 2010 but in actuality made roughly $48k. This past year I listed claimed income of $21k but made roughly $65k. I start a new job in 3 weeks that will generate $112-125k but only $85k on paper. I listed $85k as my income in my app for Amex as my 2013 tax returns will show it but for current purposes I have made a fraction of that in tax documents. I know I'm hedging my bets that Amex won't FR me for atleast another year (I use my Chase cards for 85% of my spending) as my spending will be very modest but if they do, will my income of $85k in 2012 and far less in 2011 be sufficient?
