You should start with contacting at least one bank and a mortgage broker, and come prepared with two years tax returns for them to review. If they are good, you should be able to get an idea, and /or a pre approval letter within 48 hours , if you provide them with the necessary documents. This should be your FIRST step in looking for a home, as you may be wasting a lot of time, looking at homes you can't afford, but want to buy, which makes it hard on you and your expectations..

Relatively simple; talk to your tax adviser and your mortgage broker. Between them they should be able to tell you. Just make sure you don't put yourself in a position that makes you feel uncomfortable.
