If you received a CARES grant in 2020 as an eligible child care provider, please be aware this is considered taxable income, and must be reported on your 2020 income tax report. Non-corporate entities that received over $600 will receive at least one 1099-G tax form from the State of Nebraska.
CARES grants for child care providers were administered and distributed in three main ways – and you may receive a 1099 for each of these, depending on the total amount of funding you received:
You may have already received one 1099-G from the State. Other 1099s will be mailed by February 1, 2021. We recommend you wait until mid-February to complete your taxes to ensure enough time to receive all forms.
We offer this recommendation as friendly advice. The Department of Health & Human Services cannot offer tax guidance. Should you have questions about filing your taxes, please speak with a tax professional.
