Q: Why a yearly tax receipt is so important…
Danielle: When my senior clients file their income taxes at the end of the year, the accountant will be able to enter the care service expenses and you will be able to take advantage of the ‘Home Support Services-QC Refund’ & the ‘Senior Tax Credit-Federal’. You will receive a refund that will lower the overall care cost, making my hourly fee less.
