Do you mean that your brother has been claiming care of your mother as a tax deduction, even though you're taking care of her? Your profile states that she's in a nursing home. If he's claiming her as a dependent on his tax returns, he's in big trouble.

If your mother wants you to have Power of Attorney for her and she is cognitively competent -- that is, she understands the meaning of what she is doing -- she can fill out an appropriate form, have her signature notarized, and, in some locations, register it. Since there is some family conflict involved (with your brother) I highly recommend that you and your mother have the help of an attorney who specializes in Elder Law.
