Our Clients Our Service

I’m an attorney – I could do this myself but HomeWork Solutions is so easy to work with. Dealing with seniors every day, I know the assurance that required paperwork is completed accurately, reliably, and on time for elder care and other domestic employees is invaluable.”

— Stacy C., Washington DC

Please renew my annual service. I did find a new nanny, Mary Poppins to be exact ;-), and I will be needing your services again. Thanks for a great service!

-Janine M., North Carolina

I am an 83 year old woman caretaking my infirm husband and trying to juggle the endless paperwork necessary for two part-time caregivers … and also be a loving and supportive grandmother, good neighbor, etc. I have phoned HWS with questions about many accounting details, and, without fail, your staff has listened carefully to understand exactly what I am puzzled about and has answered totally to my satisfaction.

-Anne F., Oregon

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know what taxes I’m required to pay and how do I manage those accounts?

HomeWork Solutions will handle the entire setup and ongoing management of your tax accounts for you. Give us a call or enroll online to begin the process – we will handle the rest from A to Z.

How do I know if I’m paying my employee correctly? Is overtime required?

HomeWork Solutions offers free HR Consultations to ensure that you understand all of your employment obligations. These are important to understand when negotiating employment terms.

Do you work in my state?

Yes! We support clients in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. We manage all Federal, State and Local Tax requirements. Certain states may require Complete Payroll service level.

How do you pay my employee?

Premier Household and Complete Payroll offer direct deposit, live check mailed to the employee, or a direct payment from the employer. Essential Tax only supports direct payment from employer.

How long does it take to setup my account?

Set up time generally requires 5-7 days from the time we receive completed employer information.

Does my employee need an SSN? ITIN?

It is always better to provide a Social Security Number as this will work every time when filing taxes. ITIN’s are acceptable most of the time, but certain situations may still require an SSN.

Do you handle state taxes?

Yes! We handle your Federal, State, and Local (if applicable) taxes.

How do I fund the payroll?

HWS will direct debit (via ACH) your bank account for all financial transactions, including payroll, taxes and fees for service.

How do I report hours? What if something changes?

Many clients set their payroll to process automatically without lifting a finger each pay period. If your employee’s hours will vary, you can report hours through our simple online portal or our new iOS or Android mobile app (coming soon). Essential Payroll clients will report total payments each quarter at one time online.

Can I change services during the year?

Yes, you are welcome to change your payroll tax service level during calendar quarter transitions.

What if I have already paid my employee?

We can help with back taxes by going back to prior quarters. Additional fees apply.

Do you handle Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

We work with an insurance partner that can help. For Premier Household clients, we will offer an unbiased assessment of your needs and ensure that you get the right coverage at the most effective cost. Unlike other payroll firms, we put your interests first – not making money off your protection, but prioritizing safeguarding your family with a tailored approach.

Will you file my employee’s tax return?

No, we don’t handle employee’s personal tax returns, but we will prepare a W2 for each employee so that they may file their taxes accordingly. Non-US Taxpayers can elect to have HWS file a standalone Schedule H if appropriate.

The chart up there says “price for single employee” what does that mean?

There is an additional fee per employee of $69 each quarter that you pay more than 1 worker. For example, if you pay 3 employees total, there will be an additional $138 fee that quarter (1st employee is included in base pricing listed above). Give us a call for a customized quote.
