Are food stamps income?

    If I am receiving food stamps do I have to claim them as income on my
    IRS taxes?

    Also, if I receive alimony in one state (where I have a bank account)
    but live in another state, which state do I file taxes for?

    In other words, I have no income in the state I live in, the income
    comes to an account in the state I used to live in.

    So which state do I file in? (I do receive food stamps in the state I
    live in?)

    The state in which you live in taxes your income - regardless of where you
    do your banking.

    No, food stamps are not treated as income for federal, state, or local
    income tax purposes. See Section 8(b) of the Food Stamp Act, as amended,
    7 USC 2017.
