I while back I had some trouble with my dad's second wife. When he first came to live with me, she did not agree. Long story short, after the first year, his wife sued us, and I mean my dad also!!
So in the legal discovery they asked to see all the receipts for his care, etc., thinking I was somehow making a "profit" from his $600 in social security each month. The suit is over, but for my own piece of mind -- I should probably do some accounting. (Let me tell yah, the only people that "got" anything from the suit were the lawyers)
But how do I split up the grocery receipt? In fact, we shop at the local farmer's market -- and most often than not there is no receipt? Plus I pay rent, do I just allocate a percentage? My dad has the master bedroom and bath.
When I read a comment in another post about how the county conservator "estimated percentages" I thought maybe that's the way to set things up. How was that set up? Is there some industry standard for percentages they establish?
