68. How does DTA double-check income and other information?

Like all states, DTA uses different government and private company computer matches to find unreported income and check other information. If DTA finds out information about your household that they think you did not report, they may contact you for more information. 

If you were required to report income or other information at a specific time and you failed to do so, you may have an overpayment.  It is also possible you could be disqualified (cut off for a period of time), if a hearings officer finds out you intentionally failed to report information. See Question 115.

Most SNAP, households are not required to report any changes (such as a new job) until the Interim Report or Recertification unless the household's gross income exceeds the gross income test for the household size. See Question 95.

When DTA get information directly from certain agencies or programs, DTA may be able to act on the information it gets from these sources without contacting you. In other cases, it cannot act on information. See Question 99.
