Book Overview

For home-based family child care (daycare) providers, taking care of the children is only half of the job. The other half is taking care of the business--tracking expenses, being profitable, filing taxes, and meeting government requirements. This resource covers everything family child care providers need to keep accurate business records. If a family child care provider pays close attention to the recommendations in this book, he or she will be able to claim the maximum allowable deductions and pay the lowest possible federal taxes.

Since the previous edition of Family Child Care Record-Keeping Guide, Congress and the IRS have made many changes to tax rules that affect family child care providers. There have been changes in depreciation rules, adjustments to food and mileage rates, and clarifications on how to calculate the Time-Space percentage. Author Tom Copeland has been involved in many IRS audits and represented providers in several Tax Court cases that have also clarified numerous rules. Further necessitating this ninth edition, the IRS issued two significant new rules in 2013. These updates, new rules, and clarifications are detailed in this book; all of the information is applicable to child care providers in every state, regardless of local regulations.

Tom Copeland, JD, is a writer, trainer, lawyer, and consultant focusing on family child care business issues. He has conducted record-keeping, tax preparation, and business workshops for family child care providers across the country since 1981.

   Great Explanations and Clarifications
This is so handy, I wish I had it for my previous tax year. It does a great job not only explaining write-offs, but also clarifies when the write-off is appropriate.
   Includes new rules from 2018
Just went through it and even though it was written in 2015, it was updated with the new rules in 2018. You would probably laugh about someone being excited about a tax book, but I am.
   Record keeping
I try to attend all the Tom Copeland conferences and buy his books every year that come out to stay updated on new changes.
   Incredibly helpful!
I would have lost where to start with the tax stuff. This book places things into laymen's terms, is simple to read and follow, and has lots of great advice and tips on how to record your finances for your childcare business. I would recommend it highly!
   Great book
Several great tips for tax savings are included. It was very helpful in my wife's family child day-care tax savings, especially the part where author has explained on the use of regular business use of the home space versus exclusive business use of the home space.
