states follow. since he is living with you and you are giving a place to live I know you can charge a certain amount. If you have accountant that does your taxes you can asked them. Because when you do you income that help falls in that tax return. I was unable to get any help due to moms illness all is going to the assisting living, even through I was taken care of her for years and watching and cleaning her house, and also had to leave my job. My accountant said I made that decision on my own even though I was legal full charge of mom.
