Does HUD Go By Adjusted Gross Income?
Adjusted Income is defined as Annual Income minus any HUD allowable deductions. So, to calculate your Adjusted Income, you must first calculate your Annual Income, and then subtract certain amounts deemed “deductible” by HUD.
HUD calculates Income Limits as a function of the area's Median Family Income (MFI). The basis for HUD's median family incomes is data from the American Community Survey, table B19113 – MEDIAN FAMILY INCOME IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS. The term Area Median Income is the term used more generally in the industry.
