The Online Guide has been revised and examples have been added to simplify earned and unearned income procedures across all programs. These revisions include the separation of specific self-employment topics into standalone pages. 
Established procedures remain unchanged with the exception of:  
  • earned income from corporation business types now being entered as wages into BEACON and no longer being entered as self-employment income for SNAP, TAFDC, or EAEDC. Procedures remain the same for any other income received from this source, the most common being dividend income. 
  • SNAP only clients who are paid in cash but have no business expenses are no longer considered self-employed; this income is now entered as wages into BEACON
