Housecleaning Business

Today TaxMama hears from Blanca in Arizona who needs to know. “We are receiving food stamps. My husband might be getting unemployment benefits soon. However, I just started working for a small company cleaning their houses. I am charging them $100.00 a house and might have about 5 per month to do.

They asked me to fill out a W-9 form to cut the checks in full amount to me. Will I have to report anything to the IRS? Do I have to claim anything to the state that might affect my assistance I’m getting?”

Dear Blanca,

You’re in business now. The company you’re doing work for will be issuing a 1099 at the end of the year, which will go to both IRS and your state.

So, if you’re on a food stamps program, be sure and let them know about your additional income. I don’t know the income limits in your area.

But it is possible that you might be disqualified from the program.

If the income you expect to earn is less than the value of the food stamps you’re getting (after tax), think carefully about whether or not you want to do this.

On the other hand, once you have a contract with one company to clean their houses, perhaps you can get contracts with other companies – and make enough of a living to actually become financially independent of that system.

Since you’re in business, I urge you to meet with a good local tax professional and start getting familiar with your filing and payment responsibilities.

For instance, you need to make quarterly estimate tax payments to cover the self-employment taxes on your earnings.
