  • Why do I have to include nontaxable income when calculating my “household income”?Back to top

    Your eligibility for these tax credits and the Homestead Credit Refund (for Homeowners) and Renter Property Tax Refund is based on your entire “household income” (not just your taxable income) This includes the “adjusted gross income” on your federal return (FAGI) and most types of nontaxable income.

  • Why do I have to include my scholarship or grant in “household income” even though I did not receive any money?Back to top

    Even if a scholarship or grant is paid directly to your school, you receive the benefit of that money. This includes scholarships, grants, or tuition assistance through the GI bill or government.
