1.1.M.22 Maintenance income test ceiling (FTB)

Definition

The maintenance income test (MIT) ceiling limits the amount of child support that can reduce the above base rate of FTB. The limit equals the above base rate of FTB Part A paid for the child support children for a particular payer prior to the application of the MIT. The MIT ceiling ensures that any child support received will only reduce the recipient's above base rate of FTB Part A for the child support children. Any child support income above the MIT ceiling is disregarded.
