Nanny Tax Services

Figure out if you owe nanny taxes

If you employ a nanny and are uncertain what taxes you owe — and what paperwork to submit — you're not alone.

You may owe nanny taxes if you paid your nanny:

If your nanny is your spouse, parent, your child (under age 21), or anyone under 18, you are not responsible for paying nanny taxes, even if the pay threshold is exceeded.
