Adult Family Home ( AFH) Business taxes

Foster care providers caring for adult individuals who have a physical, mental, or emotional handicap can EXCLUDE SOME of their gross income received from the state compensation on behalf of these individuals. IRS exempts income paid through a state Medicare program to AFH for up to 5 adults in a family home.(Reference IRS NOTICE 2014-7 Medicaid waiver ). These payments are referred to as difficulty of care payments excludable from gross income under § 131 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Note: Section 131(b)(1) clearly states that these adult individuals MUST be in the foster care provider’s home (under the same roof).
