    Answered . In Massachusetts the income used for calculation of child support is from all sources. The financial statement lists all of the categories you must report for the calculation, including bonuses. You should consult with an attorney when completing the financial statement as it is the snapshot into your current financial condition for purposes of calculating child support, and you want this to be as accurate and correct as possible.
