There is no where on your credit reports where you need to update this information. Lenders get your income info from you when you apply for credit, not from your credit reports. If you have credit cards currently, then you may want to update them with your updated income information as it can help make you eligible for credit line increases on your current credit card accounts. How much you make each year though has no bearing on your credit reports or scores.

If you are asked what your annual incomed is, you tell them what it is at that time, but you generally do not have to provide annual updates.
