I'm my mother's full time caregiver. Besides my mother's Social Security, my Husband is the only one that receives a paycheck. We all live in the same house. What do we have to do to take her off as a dependant or a deduction?

You should see a CPA who knows the IRS requirements. In general, you'd have to be able to take your mother as a dependent. If you can do that, then you could take tax deductions. There may be other ways to take deductions, so a specialist is advised. In your case, I'd get right on it because likely there are deductions you can take, but you want to do so legally.
Good luck,
Carol
