Tom, I live in Maine and went to the dhs office here. They stated that they go off of my gross income for benefits. Is it different from state to state or is it a blanket federal requirement for them to count the net not gross?


Ask to see the rule that says they must use gross income. It should say they use net income for self employed people. It's possible that Maine uses gross income for everyone, but I question this. Once you see the rule, link it to me and I can review it. Send to tomcopeland@live.com.
