IRS Notice 2014-7 exempts income from parents providing home care to adult children

Does anyone know how to make a W-2 for a parent providing home care for a disabled child from federal income under IRS Notice 2014-7?  And then make it taxable again for ILLinois?


    At the bottom states effective for payments after Jan 3, 2014.

    No reporting details in notice.


      See the Q&A issued by the service in March relating to this notice.  Include W2 on line 7, then back it out on line 21.  For a nonconforming state, don't back it out on line 21 (I think in Lacerte you enter a -1 for a zero).

        People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
