Rochester Estate Planning Attorney Discusses Caregiver Agreements
- The only way you can pay someone, family or someone else, for taking care of you is through a caregiver agreement.
- You could draw up an agreement where you’re going to pay your caregiver child for their services in advance if it’s based on reasonable hourly rate.
- Your child has to pay income tax on these payments.
- Erie County Department of Social Services has publicly stated that they do not like these agreements.
