Recently, I was reading an apartment rental application and I noticed that some places require that you are employed with an employer. To have proof of this, they require the followng:
1. Current paycheck stub
2. Copy of last years tax return
3. Letterhead from your employer stating your income, dates of hire, position, and social security
number. * The letter must be from Human Resources or an Officer and notarized*
Basically, what these people are saying to me that if you don't have either of the following, you can't live at their place. Bank statements won't make the cut either. So basically, that's bad news for someone who's only self employed. What do you think about this?
