5320.07 Wages Withheld/Salary Advances - Wages are sometimes paid in advance to an employee, usually at the request of the employee. Wage advances are not counted as income received. Repayment of those advances are not deducted from gross income, either.

However, wages held by the employer as a general practice, even if in violation of the law, shall not be counted as income to the household. For example, it is routine in many places of employment for the first week or two weeks of wages to be withheld and not paid until the following pay period. This is legal and the wages would not be counted until received.
