How to report wages earned as a caregiver for my daughter who lives at home if she works and we don’t declare her as an dependent?
"Qualified Medicaid waiver payments. Certain payments you receive for providing care to
an eligible individual in your home under a
state's Medicaid waiver program aren’t included
in your income. These payments may be excluded from your income whether or not you're related to the eligible individual receiving care.”
The wages are as a result of her being under a Medicaid waiver - to the wages are for doing her paperwork, bookkeeping and making other arrangements for work, medical care and food preparation, meal planning etc.
I was sent a W2 but don’t know the process for claiming (or excluding those wages).
