Should we combine immigrant assets with joint sponsor?

Hi, we have a joint sponsor and I wanted to confirm a couple things: 


1. 2019 income is over the poverty line for our household size, however 2018 and 2017 are below it. Projected 2020 income is to be over the poverty line. Do we need to fill out Part 7 of I-864? The wording is a little vague: "If your income, or the total income for you and your household, from Part 6., Item Numbers 20. or 24.a. - 24.c., exceeds the Federal Poverty Guidelines for your household size, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED to complete this Part 7. Skip to Part 8."


2. If the answer to number 1 is yes, then how do they consider the 5x limit if the most recent tax return (2019) is already above 125% of the poverty line? I found this a little confusing. To put it into perspective, we have $300K USD in real estate and cash.

Current income is what is needed unless you are not salaried.
