    It has as much income as you think.

    Is it correct? It has as much income as you think.

    Re: It has as much income as you think.

    It is grammatical, but I don't know what it means. Do you have any context?

    Re: It has as much income as you think.

    If 'it' refers to a job, the original sentence is not correct.
    You can say: the job fetches as much income as your think.

    This is the sentence from the link I gave above:

    A high-skill job pays about $118,000 whereas a low-skill job fetches about $27,000.
