Note: If there is a diversion amount entered on Form H1100, Step 3, and someone other than the individual with diversions has countable income (or two members with joint diversions both have countable income) to be entered on Form H1101, compute each member's income/earned income deductions on separate Forms H1101 until after subtracting the actual amount allowed to be diverted from each individual's income.
