Word of the Week | Income


British Columbia

The superior courts have consistently held that “income”, for the purposes of the [Federal Child Support Guidelines], includes only those receipts which are included in “Total Income”, as defined by the Income Tax Act [R.S.C. 1985, c. 1 (5th Supp.)]. Subject to any demonstrated error (deliberate or accidental) in the payor spouse's tax return, that figure can be found at line 150 of each year's return.
