Sally is applying at a LIHTC community. She has a court order establishing monthly child support payments for $300. In reviewing the verification received from the child support enforcement agency, it is verified that the household is receiving monthly payments of $200 and Sally has not pursued or made an effort to collect the unpaid portion. The manager determines that the annual amount of income for child support is $3,600 because that is the court ordered amount. Is this the correct amount?
Answer: Yes. We would count the full court ordered amount since Sally is not making any efforts to collect the amount that is not being paid.
