Question: For New Jersey Child Support, why is the income different (either higher or lower) than what I think I input?

Answer: Look at the Income > Worksheet screen.

That screen shows how the income was computed for New Jersey child support purposes.

Here are some reasons the income may be different than you expected:

  • Some items of income are excluded for child support purposes.

  • If you entered income only on the screen on the CIS & Forms > C. Income > CIS Income section, then it will NOT carry to the child support calculation.

  • On the other hand, if you used the CIS & Forms > C. Income > Full Income section, then all of that income will carry to the child support calculation.
