Small estate, $30,000, at most. mother lived in MI, I live in PA. At present I am only reimbursing myself for tolls and gas for the 1300 mile round trip, have made 4 trips to date since April 2012. Estate is complicated by the fact that my disabled sister lived with her and must be resettled. Disabled sister was supported by my Mother and her survivors SS from my deceased Father. Sister has no personal assets to live of otherwise since Mother's death. Are the reimbursements noted income to me for tax purposes? What can I also charge, meals, etc. that is not regarded as income?
