Does pet sitting qualify as an exempt service like laundry work or cooking work? The short answer is that it depends. Pet sitting depends on what type of pet is being taken care of and where the pet sits. The general rule is that a pet sitting can be exempt as in a business and may qualify for various exemptions under the tax code as well.
What kinds of jobs are exempt from income tax?
There could be many different kinds of work that are exempt from income tax. These are covered in more detail later in this article.
What if I want to be a pet sitter or provide pet care work?
Many states require that you be employed for certain reasons just to be considered employed. Some employers may require all employees to be employed in certain services or fields, such as sales, accounting, accounting and taxes. All of these work requirements can be included in the general tax form. Some states that require you to provide certain types of services to be considered “employed” include:
Frequent and regular attendance (or equivalent attendance)
The hiring and firing of people to do work
The hiring of people to perform work as supervisors, managers or managers
The hiring of people as sales associates, sales clerks, sales assistants, sales agents or a variety of other kinds of people for any and all of the above work
The hiring of people to work as housekeepers or housekeepers assistant
The hiring of people to work as nurses
The hiring of people to handle the laundry or care of pets
There can be no doubt that this type of requirement for employees is very common in the tax code as there are many reasons why that could be. Many employers, including the law firm of the same name which specializes in employment tax law, provide pet sitters for their clients as the firm has no other business like it. Some companies may also require that the employees take a test to evaluate their experience. They also require that they have a history of doing certain things.
What’s more, many states, such as Massachusetts, prohibit tax exemptions based solely on the type of work done. For example, as of late 2016, this type of tax exempt status would be lost for the following types of jobs:
An employee of a nursing home or assisted living facility
An employee of an organization who provides care to the elderly or severely disabled
A person who attends the funeral of a decedent of the decedent whose employer requires the employee to attend
