Income For Child Support Purposes

The Arizona Child Support Guidelines refers to income for child support purposes as “Gross income includes income from any source, and may include, but is not limited to, income from salaries, wages, commissions, bonuses, dividends, severance pay, pensions, interest, trust income, annuities, capital gains, social security benefits (Subject to Section 26), workers compensation benefits, unemployment insurance benefits, disability insurance benefits, recurring gifts, prizes, and spousal maintenance.   When determining income from self-employment, the Arizona Child Support Guidelines § 5(C), establishes that “gross income means gross receipts minus ordinary and necessary expenses required to produce income. Ordinary and necessary expenses do not include amounts determined by the court to be inappropriate for determining gross income for purposes of child support.”
