Sched C is the way to go, it gives you certain deductions you would not have if you just claimed it as miscellaneous income. Go back to the same CPA.

I quit my part time job the day my Mother became sick and could no longer walk. That was 2013 Feb 2nd. The CPA filed a Schedule C for me as a small business. I am not a small business. I will never do this caregiver stuff again after Mommy passes on to Glory, unless it is for my husband but then I will not get paid. We are both on Social Security. I have paid people to sit with my Mother when I take my husband To the VA in different cities for healthcare. I guess after I deduct all of my expenses for my Mother I will come out even, if it is allowed as expenses on the return to IRS. Last year I didn't keep track of the expense, this year I did after the shock of the amount owed to IRS. I learn the hard way.

Speaking for myself as per my career, I've been an independent contractor... thus my employer gives me a 1099 to show income, no taxes are taken out. It is up to me to make my own estimated quarterly income tax payments to the IRS four times a year.

I would suggest you ask a tax preparer what to do especially if you had worked for numerous people throughout the year.

No, I get paid out of my Mother's VA pension which is non taxable. I spend a lot of it on my Mother for supplies and meds, etc. I signed a contract with the VA and I write myself a check each month out of my Mother's checking account to keep a record of it. I was hoping someone knew about chance's made to help us caregiver's. Last year I got it done by a CPA and I had to pay $210/00 to the CPA and $925.00 to IRS. I only make 800.00 per month and I spend that back on Mommy.

As a paid caregiver, I believe that your employer is supposed to provide you with a 1099 which you use to file your income tax as a self-employed person. Have they given you a 1099?
