How much can I make as a daycare provider before I am responsible for reporting child care income?
If you provide daycare services with the intention of making a profit, you’re considered self-employed and responsible for reporting child care income. So, report self-employment income and expenses on Schedule C. If your net income minus expenses is $400 or more, you’ll also need to:
- File Schedule SE
- Pay self-employment taxes
