Hi chad, I have an issue with figuring out my mother’s finances related to myself. I work for her and she pays me. She is completely debilitated mentally and physically. I am worried that I am breaking the law somehow. I’m not sure this is the right professional.

Your question is a tax question, not really an estate question. As a licensed Enrolled Agent by the IRS I am able to assist you.

___

Special rules apply to workers who perform in-home services for elderly or disabled individuals.

When the caregiver employee is a family member, the employer generally will not owe employment taxes even though the employer needs to report the caregiver's compensation on a Form W-2.

If you are not an employee as a caregiver, you will still report the compensation you receive as income on your 1040 and you may be subject to self employment tax, depending on the specific facts.
