I believe it is gross income they are quoting here.

The State Department site does not say either way, but generally speaking, gross income is the basis of most calculations. Check for yourself.

Gross is what you'd like to get paid yearly and net is the ugly figure you actually receive after your paychecks are mauled by the government.

They are looking for gross income.

Gross income is before deductions, and net income is the actual amount of your check.
