To qualify as a micro entity, an applicant must meet all of the following criteria: Qualify as a USPTO-defined small entity. Not be named on more than four previously filed applications.* Not have a gross income more than three times the median household income in the previous year from when the fee(s) is paid.

Yes this is what  I gathered they need prove of income etc.. so I guess I am in the small entity I read through there website they say $150 then in the application itself it says $ 140. That was my question which is how much to pay for small entity?
