Foster Parent Income Tax

Insert from page 54 of the Foster Family Handbook on MCFD Publications page:

"In general, money you receive for being a foster parent that is used for the care of the child placed in your foster home is not taxable. However, the rules can be interpreted in a variety of ways, and you should consult with the BCFFPA/FAFP and Revenue Canada for the most recent information on this topic."
