Taxes and Payroll Assistance for Families
Families often overlook one important thing; taxes. If you pay your nanny—or any household employee—$1,900 or more in a calendar year, the IRS says you have tax and payroll responsibilities as a household employer. And unless you’re a tax expert, you probably have a few questions about how to do things correctly.

Health Insurance for Nannies
When a family decides to hire a nanny, there are other benefits that need to be provided besides salary. Many families wish to provide health insurance as an additional benefit, just as a company might provide health insurance to its employees, but the nanny is responsible for obtaining their own plan. A BIG perk is that any money paid towards health insurance is TAX FREE for both the family and the nanny!
If you work for a family that agrees to pay money towards your health insurance you will need to know how much your premium will cost. Please contact E-Health Insurance to receive FREE quotes at www.ehealthinsurance.com
