Total the SNAP unit's gross nonexempt earned income. See PM 08-04-01 for the treatment of different types of earned income. Multiply the unit's total gross earned income by
80%, rounding the result up to the next whole dollar. The result is called total net earned income. The 20% portion of earned income is the earned income deduction.
