What is Included in Gross Income for Purposes of Calculating Child Support?

Under the Arizona Child Support Guidelines, gross income is broadly and flexibly interpreted, and very inclusive. When calculating child support, the parents must include their wages, interest on stock investments, bank accounts, retirement accounts, capital gains, veterans’ benefits, prizes and awards, lottery and gambling winnings, insurance and workers’ compensation benefits, pensions and annuities — that is, income from just about any source.
