My dad receicved $X from his employer for housing,food, and living allowances in 2015 and 2016.He works abroad.
The CSS profile asks:Enter the amount of housing, food, and other living allowances your parents received from their employer(s) or other sources in 2015. Include cash payments and cash value of benefits. Do not include any amount here you have already reported. So, I put $X there.
Do I enter $X in the following question? And, if yes, where out of the following options?
Enter the amount of other income and benefits your parents received or expect to receive in 2016.
Child support expected to be received for all children (Not child support expected to be paid)
Payments to tax-deferred pension and savings plans expected to be made
Housing, food, and other living allowances expected to be received by military, clergy, and others (including cash payments and cash value of benefits)
Untaxed military service benefits expected to be received
Cash expected to be received or any money expected to be paid on your behalf (e.g., bills)
All other untaxed income and benefits expected to be received
“Enter the amount of housing, food, and other living allowances your parents received from their employer(s) or other sources in 2015.”
That is all. You do not put $X anywhere now. Since other questions ask about “other income” and if you have any other income then you would put but since you did not mention in the question I am guessing income from your employer is the only income for you. So everywhere else just leave blank.
