Do I report income on my taxes if I receive money from my mother?
Do I report income on my taxes if I receive money from my mom who lives with me? I would receive a small amount each month which helps offset the added utility bills.
Your mom is helping you for the additional expenses you are incurring because she is living with you. This is not taxable income. If you were caring for her and she waas paying you for the care, then you would be receiving taxable income. You should document the payments you receive from your mom in case you need to apply for Medicaid in the future.
