Tax question: I live in Idaho and am a Certified Family Home

Resolved Question:

Tax question: I live in Idaho and am a Certified Family Home Provider. This means I provide in-home care to a disabled adult. Last year was my first year of doing this, and I've been told by others doing this, as well as some working in Medicaid, that the money I receive is tax exempt. I received a 1099 from Medicaid, and when I put it into Turbotax is shows as income. Am I doing something wrong? I apologize if I haven't given you enough info...I can provide more if you need...thanks!

here (the very last section references that)

Shawn P Adamo :

I have no idea why medicaid sent that 1099. i would contact them . Don't include it in your turbotax. You can always explain why of the IRS asks.

Customer:

Hello, and thank you for your answer. I contacted Medicaid this morning, and the woman told me the 1099 was not sent to me in error - everyone gets a 1099 for paid services. I get what she's saying, but I still do not think I was issued the correct form. Do you have any other suggestions? Or should I contact a different medicaid office? Thank you so much for your help - I am so frustrated with this issue!!

Shawn P Adamo : As a CPA I can explain the tax code. Despite what they said the federal and state exemption is the rule. I know it's not from your state but that's why I sent the link bro "substantiate" my answer so you don't have to guess whose answer is right from among sevarl you may receive.
