All per capita income received by a Kansas Tribe Members is from gaming. Non-Kansas tribes will require additional research to determine the purpose of the disbursement in order to assess whether it is countable or exempt. When this income is received on other than a monthly basis, it is considered intermittent unearned income and the rules of 5213 apply. Also see 5409 for more information about Native American income types that are exempt.
