Chancellor’s attribution to husband of one‑half of income of his wholly‑owned business as personal income, for purposes of calculating husband’s child support obligation, rather than accepting husband’s calculations of his income, was within chancellor’s discretionary power, where after four years, four attorneys, and numerous discovery filings, husband came to trial with admittedly incorrect income disclosure form and none of the documents required to accompany it, failed to attach any current income tax returns to his income disclosure form, and admitted he had not filed returns for at least two years immediately preceding trial.
