Question: Why is the child support income higher than the amount I entered?

Answer: This can happen if there is an additon to income from federal subsidies that are administered through the tax system.

These subsidies include the Earned Income Credit and the Child Tax Credit.

To see if this is the case, see if the Federal Income Tax number on the guideline worksheet is negative.

A negative Federal Income Tax probably indicates the presence of these so-called "refundable credits."
