Can I hire family members to provide my IHSS ? Yes. You can hire relatives, friends, neighbors, and other caregivers to provide you with IHSS .
You start by going to your local ihss in your city and fill out all the paper work and then follows with a background check and fingerprints and also followed with a 3 hour class. Then they find you a patient care for if you don’t have one already. Well from my personal experience, it takes 4-7 months .
IHSS payments are non-taxable and non-reportable income if you live with the person who needs the assistance you are providing. You do not have to file a tax return when you qualify as an IHSS provider.
Do I Pay Taxes on My IHSS Income ? If you live with your client, your IHSS income is exempt from taxes . If you do not live with your client, it is not exempt and you will pay taxes . This is because of a special IRS regulation called difficulty of care income tax exclusion.
We estimate that about 40 percent of the increase in wage costs in 2020‑21—roughly $220 million General Fund—are attributable to the recent state minimum wage increases on IHSS provider wages from $12 per hour to $13 per hour on January 1, 2020 and the scheduled increase from $13 per hour to $14 per hour on January 1,
