Authority: Regulations 20 CFR 416.1161(a)(7), (b), (c), (d)
The value of any home produce grown for personal consumption is not counted as income to an ineligible spouse or parent for deeming purposes, or an ineligible child or eligible alien (sponsored by an ineligible spouse or parent) in determining the amount of the allocation. This exclusion also applies to the value of any produce raised as part of a trade or business if that produce is subsequently used for home consumption. Follow the development in SI 00830.700 to determine if home produce is excludable under this provision. This exclusion does not apply to the income of an essential person or a sponsor of an alien.
