Potential Tax Savings for Home and Community Based Services Waiver

We would like to make you aware of potential tax savings for family members of people on the Home & Community Based Services Waiver!

Per Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 2014 – 7, there may be tax savings for family members who earn income by providing supports through In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) for an individual who is enrolled in the Home & Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver.  

Talk to the person who helps with your taxes to find out if you qualify. If so, you will need a letter of verification that you are in the HCBS waiver program. Contact your service coordinator and we will send it to you.
