When determining eligibility or benefit amount, deduct court ordered support payments that are actually made. Deduct this amount from the gross income amount remaining after deducting allowable self-employment expenses, the 3/4 earned income deduction and, if applicable, the adult/teen/child disregard.
Deductions for court ordered support payments cannot exceed the total amount of budgeted net income.
