Do-it-yourself guides for hiring a nanny, paperwork, and the nanny tax


We are no tax accountants, nor are we lawyers.

We are normal parents. This site describes our experience with nannies, and the steps we took to hire and pay the nannies for our children. Our goal is, and has always been, to do everything in a way that is legal and according to all applicable rules and regulations. But we are no lawyers nor tax accountants, and as such we cannot give you definite advice for your taxes or about any laws or regulations.

Please consult with a tax accountant or lawyer to get definite information for any tax or legal issue. Do not consider the information presented on this site as a replacement for getting advice from a tax accountant or lawyer. The tax laws and regulations in the USA are highly complicated and specific. Do not consider this site as a replacement for talking to a tax expert or lawyer or with an otherwise qualified professional.
