I'd imagine whenever they encounter criminals and stop them, they'll also loot their dead/unconscious bodies.

Maybe. Not that they should be actively patrolling streets to fight humanity's crime for it.

Target practice, and keeping their side of the city clean for nuisances.

I would assume that some money makes it way down the sewers and the turtles or Splinter collect it. Or April gives them a nice little allowance.

Through the "Fourth Wall", aside from recycling/scavenging/pawning, more minor sources.

If they could figure out how to get past the interview and be hired, I think late night janitorial services could be an option.

Well in that case, they're famous, so they're rich and don't know it. Money just keeps appearing now and then.

I would think in the 80's - 90's time frame scavenging and pawn shops. Maybe online message boards. Now a days I would think those things and Ebay. Even though there is five of them they wouldn't need that much. Their home is free. Their utilities are free. The only things they would need to spend money on are food and weapons. Perhaps since they are masters of their weapons maybe they can make them as well.

Of course, it's New York City.

I remember a fanfic ages ago where the Mirage Turtles are the real Turtles in reality, and they were getting residual checks from all of the movies and cartoons and toys based on them. A silly idea, but funny, and approached relatively seriously. I forget who wrote it... Dawn? Horseturtle? One of those.

Heh, I kinda like that. (So where they known to society, or just keeping hidden and allowing people to believe they're fictional? lol)

As for how the Turtles were getting money, I remember the 2007 movie showing Mikey dressing up for a kids birthday party, and Donnie doing tech support on the phone.

Yep that works. Not sure everyone would agree but that's valid at least for the 2007 movie.

Not sure if I'm right but I remember one of the early levels of the 2007 game is Mikey making his way back to the sewer after doing a kids birthday.
