    It shouldn't. 

    One question: are your expense budget categories goals using negative amounts? (They should be positive, but I have seen use cases when they get pre-populated as negative amounts for the goals.)

    If so, those negative amounts end up adding to the Income amount. (Negative less a negative. . . and it gets added to Income.)

    Let me know if you are seeing this.

    The columns of income are positive and the expensive is in a negative, just can't figure out how they can add those two, MAKES NO SENSE
