After much research, it appears when you receive a 1099-Misc for independent contractor work from a third-party entity, and when the student is attending a private school, then the related expenses are deductible. I know most host families work hard, very hard to support students that they host, and it truly is another job, and for the purpose of making money. There are benefits, as with most jobs. However, this is a far different thing than a volunteer hosting position. The 3rd-party coordinator may have resources for you on this. Best of luck!
