As nannies and caregivers, the tax laws can be hard to decipher. Our friends at HomeWork Solutions have this great little list of the SIX Things you should know as a caregiver. Do you know all six of them? Does the family you work for know all of them as well? What items would you add to the list?
The state where you work will determine your allowed pay frequency. Most household workers must be paid weekly or bi-weekly (every other week). Semi-monthly and monthly pay, where permitted, is discouraged due to the difficulty of tracking and paying overtime, which is ALWAYS based on a 7 day work week.
