Property used in a trade or business and necessary for self-support is exempt if it meets the following criteria:
If the person owns more than one income-producing property, look at each to determine if the 6% rule is met. The total equity value of all exempt properties is limited to $6,000.
Non-business income-producing property is property such as land-use fees, tools, uniforms, royalties, and property used to produce foods for home consumption.
For AABD Cash or MANG cases based on blindness, if the property is part of a self-support plan, document details of the plan and the assets in the case record.
