I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this, but my google-fu isn't yielding a definite conclusion...

Assuming the panel does not permit double-tapped neutrals...

For single-pole AFCI/GFCI/combo breakers with a pigtail, you should only have one pigtail per bus bar terminal slot, correct? In other words, treat the pigtail as a neutral?

Or is there some kind of allowance to double-tap those pigtails?

Thanks, Chris

Yes, that's a real live neutral wire that powers the whole circuit.

Neutrals are always single-tapped unless the panel labeling says to double-tap em (hello Pushmatic). Again the panel labeling says, but many permit *triple* tapping safety ground. (some even call out 1 or 3, not 2).
