IM-71 August 31, 2023; IM-33 April 15, 2005; IM-111 October 22, 2004

Dependent care expenses that are either paid by or billed to an ineligible household member (except for an ineligible student) are divided evenly among the household members, including the ineligible member(s). Ineligible household members include those who:

  • are not meeting the ABAWD work requirement
  • do not wish to provide a Social Security number
  • are non-citizens who are not qualified/eligible to receive food stamp benefits

All but the ineligible member’s share is a deductible expense for the remaining household members.
