The reason is because they can't see your tax return to see what types of deductions you may have to lower your AGI. They just don't know if they exist with the alternative method.Have you got the solution?
And yes, you can resubmit your IBR plan request anytime, and you use your tax return. On the IBR certification form, box 1, check the box that says "I am submitting documentation early to have my income-driven repayment calculated early".
And stop submitting a paystub! Use your tax return.
