You know that your client’s taxes can be complicated. When they hire a nanny, a home health aide, or other household employee, things get even messier thanks to labor laws and the “Nanny Tax.” Because some household employers may not understand IRS tax rules and state laws around employing caregivers and housekeepers, they may turn to you for guidance.
Fortunately, you can help your clients navigate the legalities of hiring a household nanny—and receive assistance along the way.
Why Are Nanny Taxes Important?
As a CPA, ensuring your clients understand and comply with their employment tax obligations as household employers is a must! Former employees can file for state unemployment benefits, which alerts the IRS that your client may have skipped paying their household employment taxes. Further, if a nanny ever finds cause to file a wage dispute against your client, as lack of tax payments could easily be exposed and your client won’t have complete payroll records that are legally required.
Other reasons why filing taxes is essential for your client include:
- Ensures client’s ability to obtain worker’s compensation insurance
- Protects against future liabilities
- Qualify for a tax credit
- Protect client’s future career opportunities
- Ensures financial security for employees
