You'll need to provide income verification documents for all income received in the household. You may also have to provide tax filing information to verify your tax filing status and/or any deductions you claim on your taxes. Additionally, if your child is not a U.S. citizen you may be required to provide verification of their immigration status.
If there are any special circumstances regarding your income, please explain in detail on a separate sheet of paper.
