Like all states, DTA uses different government and private company computer matches to find unreported income and check other information.

If DTA finds out information about your household that they think you did not report, they may contact you for more information. If you were required to report income or other information at a specific time and you failed to do so, DTA may pursue an overpayment in your case. It is also possible you could be disqualified (cut off for a period of time), if a hearing officer decides you intentionally lied in order to get SNAP. See what if DTA says you committed fraud or an Intentional Program Violation (“IPV”).

Most SNAP households are not required to report any changes (such as a new job) until the Interim Report or Recertification unless the household's gross income exceeds the gross income test for the household size. See Simplified Reporting and when you must report changes to DTA.

When DTA gets information directly from certain agencies or programs, DTA may be able to act on the information it gets from these sources without contacting you. In other cases, it cannot act on information it gets until your Interim Report or Recertification. See what happens when DTA receives information about you after your SNAP application is approved.
