One Response to “bonus”

The way this is handled really depends on the nature of the money. If this is a bonus is considered income. This means that the surplus income obligation would apply and you would likely have to bring in 50% of the bonus,

The other way to treat a lump sum of money is to treat it as an asset. So let’s say this was an inheritance so it is not related to your normal income or property, If you were in bankruptcy the total amount would be lost as a result of the bankruptcy.
