Federal Poverty Guideline

The federal poverty guideline is issued each year in the Federal Register by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The guidelines are used for administrative purposes — for instance, determining financial eligibility for certain federal programs. The Arts Tax uses this guideline for determining whether a household is exempt from paying the tax.
