Wages or salary may include armed forces pay (some payments made to children of Vietnam veterans and some subsidies made to military personnel are excluded) commissions, tips, piece-rate payments, and cash bonuses earned.

  • Child support 

  • Court settlements or judgments

  • Income from estate and trust funds 

  • Net income from self-employment 

  • Pensions, annuities, life insurance, and retirement income 

  • Public assistance payments 

  • Rental income

  • Total gross earnings 

  • Unemployment compensation 

  • Workers' compensation income, death benefit payments, and other disability payments
