^^If they qualify for the simplified needs formula (income below $50k and meet one of the other criteria, such as filing a 1040a/ez)
Would somebody with rental property qualify for 1040a/ez?
I also wonder if total income is as low as the OP states. I wonder if the OP is just stating "earned income" and not what the "income plus rental income" is.
The stated income sounds too low for a working parent PLUS rental property income.
