Senior Care Center1 Publishes Tax Guide

US based Senior Care Center1, a free online resource that helps families find assisted living facilities for their elderly loved ones, recently published a tax guide aimed at helping caregivers do their taxes quickly and efficiently. Caregivers often face difficulties with taxes, and the new guide will provide them with all the information they need to maximize tax deductions and credits. The article can be found here: https://srcarecenter.com/finances/the-ultimate-2021-tax-guide-for-caregivers/.

“Taxes can be very stressful, especially for caregivers,” says the article. “If you are a caregiver and are worried about filing your 2020 taxes, do not stress any longer. In this article, I will explain exactly what you need to do to file your taxes in the most stress-free way possible while maximizing deductions and tax credits. The nation’s tax season starts a bit later this year (on February 12, 2021) to allow the IRS time to do additional programming and testing of their services. Following the December 27th tax law changes that provided a second round of economic impact payments along with other benefits, the IRS needs to account for these in their 2021 systems. This extension will allow the IRS to ensure all refunds are paid out as quickly and problem-free as possible.”

The 2021 tax season comes with a few changes due to a number of reasons, with COVID-19 being one of the more prominent examples. The pandemic has seriously affected every part of the economy, and the taxation system has not gone untouched. The federal government and the IRS have both made a number of significant changes to help those affected most by COVID-19. Some of these changes include changes to standard deduction and income tax brackets as well as changes to accommodate the stimulus checks that were distributed in 2020 under the CARES Act and the COVID-Related Tax Relief Act.

When paying taxes, one can either take the standard deduction or choose to itemize their deductions. Senior Care Center1’s article explains how this works in great detail, stating, “Tax deductions help lower how much of your income is subject to federal income taxes. Some deductions are only available to people who choose to itemize their deductions, while others are available through the standard deduction. Itemizing — the process of calculating your deductions one by one — can be stressful and time-consuming. However, this method can be worth it if your itemized deductions are greater than the amount of the standard deduction.”

Another way for caregivers to lower their taxes is to take advantage of tax credits. There are two main types: refundable and non-refundable. With refundable tax credits, when the tax credit is greater than the amount the caregiver owes, the difference is paid back. Non-refundable tax credits, however, lower one’s tax bill to zero but make it so one cannot receive a refund. Caregivers can take advantage of multiple tax credits and deductions to lower their tax bill at the end of the year but this depends on whether one is an independent caregiver or a household employee. The tax guide explains the difference and how to file taxes as an independent caregiver and as a household employee.
