Does stipend from parents count as income?
I receive a large monthly stipend from my father as means to support myself, pay my bills etc. Can I use this stipend as a form of "income" when applying to lease/finance a car for example?

Is this stipend monies your parents give you arbitrarily? If so, it could stop at their whim and you would have no income. If it's part of a trust or some other documented account, then yes.
