Hi my name is***** would be happy to help you with your questions.
Hi Carol, generally housing provided by your employer would be taxable but there are exceptions. I believe that you qualify for the exception. Let me tell you why.
The lodging must meet the following requirements: It is provided for the convenience of the employer, It is required as a condition of employment and It is furnished on the business premises of the employer. Based on this, the cost of the apartment would not be included as income.
Here is an article that details taxable and non-taxable employee provided housing.
