    Babysitting income

    Missouri. I babysit for a friend of mine and I was wondering if the income I make from watching her daughter is taxable or not. I only make $100 each week and have been doing it since the beginning of June. I don't expect to make more than $2500 by the end of this year. Do I have to claim it?

    ALL income is reportable and taxable unless stated otherwise by the tax code. I am not aware of any exceptions for babysitting income.
