    The first question is why the change over. If the change is just to avoid probate and not change the flow of assets contrary to your father's intent that may be fine. Watch out if the assets are highly appreciated as that change over may eliminate the step up in tax basis. Second marriage situations are difficult and good commication is required to avoid issues.

    You need a durable poer of attorney to take care of your mther's finances and a heath care directive to make the medical decisons. You also need a written agreement for you to get the house. Also be wary in case an action is started to open a guardianship for your mother and take her away. A Revocable Trust would be a good idea to avoid probate. You did not mention Medicad\id planning but that may facor in also.

    An S corporation for income tax purposes will be a good place to start as you can receive a salary and the rest is paid out to you in dividends and about payroll taxes. You may want a service company to operate in a state with no income tax and have fees paid to that corproation to reduce income tax.

    If you do not take any further action, the entire amount of income will be taxed on Schedule C of your 1040; you will also incur payroll taxes. You could elect to be taxed as a corporation: either as an S or a C.
