In August 2008, we took a friend-in-trouble into our home.
She had moved to our area, and upon arrival found that the home she purchased had been destroyed by the former owner. She quite literally had no place to go.
Our friend is on SS disability with no other income and does not have to file taxes.
We have essentially been supporting her since August. We have charged no rent or utilities, and have supplied most of her food and necessities so her minimal finances could be used for repairing her home.
Are any of our expenses for our friend's support tax deductible?
