All wages and salaries, including tips, of an employee are nonexempt earned income.
For persons who receive tips, use the amount of tips reported on their pay stubs. If the tip amount is not on the stub and the client cannot verify the amount using other sources, accept the client's statement of the amount of tips.
For school employees or other contractual workers covered by an annual contract, average the annual wage over 12 months regardless of how often the person is paid. Average contractual income over the period it is intended to cover if it is not the SNAP unit's annual income and it is not paid on an hourly or piecework basis.
