Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
However, I need a little clarification. Does your employer provide you with housing?
In general, housing provided by an employer is considered income for tax purposes. However, if all of the following are true, then you can exclude it from your taxable income:
The housing is furnished on the business premises of your employer,
The housing is furnished for the convenience of your employer, and
The housing is a condition of your employment. (You must accept it in order to be able to properly perform your duties.)
If all of the above is true, then it is not taxable income. If any of the above is not true, then it is taxable income.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
