I care for my mom in my own home, she pays me a salary and pays all the required taxes, ss etc. I also pay taxes, ss etc. on the income. in exhange I give her room, board, utilities, transportation, as well as personal caregiving. all the monies she gives me are reported to the IRS as a salary, so I am paying taxes on the entire amount. Can I deduct my expenses somehow and get some of the taxes back?
