Paying Nanny Over the Table
We are planning to hire a nanny, and it’s important to us to pay the appropriate taxes. However, I’m running into a lot of challenges in finding a nanny who is willing to be paid over the table. I understand for some the issue is about immigration status issues but it seems like for others it’s primarily an issue about take home pay, and the rest is just confusion on what it means for them because they have only ever been paid under the table. We’re willing to pay both the employee and employer portions of the tax (which I understand to be ~approx 15%).
I was trying to find a good resource online targeted at nannies about the nanny tax and being paid over the table (including the benefits to them in terms of access to social security, paid leave, unemployment and disability benefits but I’m only finding articles aimed at employers) - does anyone have a suggestion for where I might find a good explanation that I can share with potential nannies?
