any help here? i'm now self employed and trade through an LLC i created, but worked for ETG for 3.5 years. when i go to get a home loan, can i say i've been self employed for 4 years, or only .5 years? you are a limited partner, and don't get a W2, so maybe that can be considered self employment. it's really screwing things up, as they won't look at self employment income unless greater than 2 years.
