Earned Income

The HTML to link to this page
 

Earned income is wages, salary, tips, fees or other compensation generated as a result of the active performance of labor or a service. Earned income is payment for work or service already completed. Earned income also includes profits from your own business or trade which you have materially participated in producing. Earned income ceases if the labor or service for which it is paid stops. Earned income can include money, property, and even an exchange of goods of services. Another term for earned income is active income. Earned income is in contrast to passive income or unearned income, such as interest, dividends, annuities, rents and other income from savings or investments which continues regardless of whether or not work or a service is actively performed.
