Homecare—Can It Be A Tax Deduction?

By Guest writer
Wednesday - February 24, 2010

We are fast approaching income tax time. The holidays are over and a New Year is beginning. If you are looking after dependent children and your elderly parents or relatives, who require care with the everyday “activities of daily living” you may be able to write off long term care expenses as a deduction. You will want to check with your tax accountant for your particular circumstances.

This is a busy time for baby boomers and high-pressure professionals. We can all use help to reduce our expenses and the stressors in our lives. Some of us may have disabled children and parents who need care. There are lots of things that take up our time and energy. Who can help us and who can we trust?

Many people have faced just such a dilemma. They have decided that the best alternative was to find a company they could trust to help them with their concerns. You hire a tax accountant at tax time and a professional mover when it’s time to move. Why wouldn’t you hire a homecare agency to provide long term care in your home for a family member that needs assistance?

Respite care is another alternative. If you require a needed break away from the many responsibilities that are putting a lot of stress and strain on your time and energy, consider this option. This is a gift you give yourself and one that your family member will really appreciate. Parents and children know when you have reached your over-stressed level. They will welcome the opportunity to spend quality time with a professional person dedicated to their care and concerns.

For this year’s gift-giving occasions, you and other family members may want to pool your financial resources. Instead of buying many small gifts, which quickly loose their value - chip in together as a family and buy your parents or other loved ones the gift of a Mastercare gift certificate. What gift could be better than care at home?
