When a minor parent is living with one or both natural/ adoptive parents, the minor parent(s)
income is used to determine eligibility and payment amount for the assistance unit. The following
amounts are deducted from the responsible parent's gross income when certain conditions are met:
- Standard Work Expense
- Deduct $90 or 20% of gross earnings, whichever is greater.
- Need Standard Deductions
Deduct the 100% need standard for the responsible parent plus any other persons living
in the home who are NOT included in the TANF household and claimed by the responsible
parent as dependents for federal income tax purposes.
Deduct amounts actually paid by the responsible parents to persons not living in the home
and claimed by the responsible parent as dependents for federal income tax purposes AND
payments made for alimony and child support.
