What Is Not Considered “Gross Income” When Calculating Child Support in South Carolina?

In determining child support “gross income” does not include:

  1. Benefits received from Means-Tested Public Assistance Programs, such as temporary assistance to needy families (TANF), Supplemental Security income (SSI), food stamps, and general assistance;
  2. Income derived by other household members; and/or
  3. In-kind income; however, the court should count income expense reimbursements as in-kind payments received by a parent from self-employment or operation of the business if they are significant and reduce personal living expenses, such as a company car or reimbursement of meals.
