What the Nanny Tax Means for You.

Paying household employees — like nannies — cash “under the table” could cost you thousands of dollars in fines and penalties. Read our guide for tips to save you time, money and stress.

The IRS may consider you a household employer and responsible for withholding employment taxes. If you will pay your nanny or other household employees:

  • More than $2,600 in 2023 you must withhold and pay Social Security and Medicare on all their wages
  • More than $1,000 in any quarter in 2023 you must pay the federal employment or FUTA. You may also owe state unemployment taxes

SurePayroll makes it easy for you to pay your employees, and file payroll taxes and year-end forms.
