Nanny Tax Services
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:
- More than $1,900 per year
- More than $1,000 per quarter
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.
SurePayroll Makes Managing Your Nanny Taxes a Breeze.

Calculate the amount to withhold for Social Security and Medicare, federal unemployment taxes (FUTA) and state unemployment taxes, if applicable in your state.
