Customer Question
I know I can...

I know I can exclude section 131 payments form my income for a certified family home- can I deduct epenses on top of that, basically creating a loss that would offset other income

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

Not much more to it- can I show a loss on a schedule c for a certified family home when I exclude the section 131 payments

Unfortunately no, you cannot exclude the income and claim expenses too. The exclusion is a huge benefit as it allows you to not pay tax on that amount.

Please let me know if you need more information.
