DCF 150 has a broad definition of income and it's not clear if these would count as gross income for either the calculation of child support or any existing order that requires a reconciliation of support based on gross income.
I do not believe tax refunds or federal stimulus payments would count as "income" for support calcuation purposes. Government benefits like food stamps, daycare assitsance, etc. typically do not either. This obviously isn't settled law as the stimulus payments are novel.
My chapter 13 In Michigan tax refund portion is silent. Will I get a refund? If so how much am I an entitled to keep if this is silent.

If you have copies of your tax returns for those years, I would call the social security administration to see if they could update their records accordingly. If they cannot do it, then this gets to be a harder task. You could contact the IRS (good luck with that these days with their limited...Read more »

And since your husband was alive when the stimulus legislation was enacted (mid-January), you can keep the $1,200 earmarked for...Read more »

I'm sorry for your situation. Your girlfriend may appeal that unemployment agency decision, but unfortunately, that may be a longshot. You are spot-on about the wage issue. And money from extra jobs won't matter. It's the money from the employer you are seeking unemployment from that matters.
If the person is audited then they can receive up to a 50% penalty depending on whether or not the IRS considers it fraud or not.
