Capital Gains

A person who decides to sell an investment or an item of personal use earns a profit or suffers a loss. The profits from these sales are capital gains.

Investments and items of personal use may include but are not limited to

  • homes,
  • cars,
  • stocks,
  • bonds, or
  • certificates of deposit.

Capital gains income does not count toward Child Care eligibility.

This rule considers capital gains differently from the SNAP rule. Divert the household's capital gains income when a household is receiving SNAP and Child Care Subsidy.
