You are asking about Medicaid waiver payments.

Qualified Medicaid waiver payments may be excluded from gross income only when the care provider and the care recipient reside in the same home. When the care provider and the care recipient do not live together in the same home, the Medicaid waiver payments may not be excluded from gross income.

Thank you for your replay.

I am aware about the rules but a W2 was issued and I want to "offset" that income on the return to refund Fed and SS taxes withheld on W2. Previous inquiries on-line stated the amount should be put on line 8 of the schedule 1 but that does not seem correct.


Thank you

Thanks to all who responded.

The answer is on input on screen 14.1 "Nontaxable Medicaid Waiver payments to care provider that were incorrectly reported on W-2 box 1" . Entry on this screen will transfer to schedule 1 line 8 and the amount will reflect as a negative number with the explanation of "Notice 2014-7"


Thanks again
