No daha needed?

Nope, most of the time daha is optional actually :) Both ways are commonly used in speech and writing.

I've read that daha in comparisons is more like "even" - optional but makes the comparison stronger.

So "Benim gelirim seninkinden daha az" would be "My income is even less than yours".

Is it "senin-ki-n-den", where " "ki"means "that is" senin?

Something like that -- you have senin "your ..." versus seninki "yours" (which you could understand as "the one that is your ...").
