To be eligible, annual income must not exceed $49,900 for married couples or $42,500 for single persons, Homicki said. All income, including social security must be reported. Documentation of proof, such as a copy of a 2012 Social Security 1099 form and a copy of a 2012 income tax return, is needed.
