impute income

English

Imputing income is when the court decides how much income a person makes or should be making. This figure is different from the income the person says they earn.

For example, if a person says that they have no income, but there is proof that they earn income in cash that they do not report on their income taxes, the judge can impute income. Or if a person quit their job so they wouldn't have to pay support, the judge can impute income.
