If a spouse or former spouse not living in your household pays support to you, include that support in your eligibility income. Also include any payments received from other persons outside your household, including nontaxable cash or property received for personal use. Examples include cash received from a parent to buy clothing and gifts from grown children. Do not include monies paid pursuant to a cost-sharing arrangement. Do not include child support, as child support is considered your child's nontaxable income if he or she files for Tax Forgiveness. Include the following kinds of nontaxable income:
- Support you receive from a spouse or former spouse who does not live in your household;
- Nontaxable payments to your employer's withholding plan for hospitalization, sickness, disability, death, supplemental unemployment or strike benefits; and
- Payments received as a foster parent for providing in-home care for foster children.
