Income is a major factor in determining eligibility. If the prospective participant does not have earned income, he or she will not be eligible for the IDA program. 

Earned income, as defined by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is “all income from employment, but only if it is includable in gross income.” Earned income generally includes all taxable income which individuals receive from working – income that is not taxable generally does not count as earned income. 

Examples of earned income include:

  • Taxable wages, salaries and tips

  • Taxable income from self-employment

  • Gross income received as statutory employee

  • Federal Program Stipends such as AmeriCorps or Senior Aides
