#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Will qualified Medicaid Waiver payments affect my taxable income?

Yes. Qualified Medicaid waiver payments are excluded from your reported income, and therefore are not taxed.

If the Medicaid payments are not qualified based on IRS criteria, you may have to report this income on your tax return.
