I am expecting an EBT Deposit into my food stamp account today at 6 a.m., if all is well. I get Food Stamps, courtesy of the United States Government. Nice sum I'm getting now. Enough FRUGAL food for almost 6 mos. in ONE month...wow, a little GOURMET I can go. Food Stamps is what is called "Discounted Income," and may be included as Income on your Income Tax Return...
"Discounted Income" is INCOME .. similar to CASH income, but it is called DISCOUNTED because it can only be used for a LIMITED number of BARTER transactions...In this case, FOOD...most food. So I it is called DISCOUNTED because it does not have the FULL BARTER VALUE of U.S. Dollars (or cents).
