Things You Should Know Before Hiring a Long-Term Nanny

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on 4/27/21 8:00 AM

Whether you're a mom, dad, grandparent , or guardian, the children in your life are some of your greatest treasures. Finding the right person to love and care for them is significant and hiring a qualified nanny to work in your home requires some research. Here are some of the most important things you should know before hiring a long-term nanny.  

#1: Know what you need.

Every family is unique, which means your childcare needs will be unique too. Understand your family's needs and make a list of expected duties and responsibilities you want a nanny to have. Then, think about the qualities you're looking for in a nanny. Do you want someone young and energetic that may be just starting their nanny career? Maybe you would be more comfortable with someone experience, who has worked with multiple families during their career. Know what you're looking for, and let that help guide your search.

Should I Outsource My Household Employee's Payroll?

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on 4/20/21 10:00 AM

At HomeWork Solutions, we understand household payroll and tax preparation can be complicated. With tax laws changing regularly, it can be challenging to stay up to date on everything. Outsourcing will save you time and the headache of researching what has changed and what hasn't. You won't need to worry about making a mistake with deductions, either. Your household payroll specialist is skilled in each part of the process, navigating everything for you—the result: payroll and tax preparations are seamless.  

If you've recently hired a household employee like a nanny or senior caregiver, and you don't have the time to manage payroll and tax deductions for your household employee, consider outsourcing the work to a qualified payroll and tax provider like HomeWork Solutions. That way, you and your employee are compliant, and you can rest easy knowing all the details are handled.

If you needed more of an incentive to start paying your household employees on the books, The American Rescue Plan Act is now in place for additional financial help, providing families with even more tax credits. It's never been easier to do the right thing and pay your employee's taxes accurately and on time.

Outsourcing Your Clients' Nanny Payroll May Be a Profitable Move

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on 9/5/17 9:00 AM

Are your clients with household employees draining your professional resources?

As a CPA, you may take on the burden of nanny tax and payroll management without realizing how much work you're agreeing to provide.  It can be that Friday afternoon call to calculate withholding taxes on a check that includes overtime. Or the questions about how to fill out a W-2 or I-9 form. Unfortunately, this may ultimately be more than time-consuming – it could also be eating away at your profits.

Outsourced Nanny Tax Preparation?

Posted by HomeWork Solutions on 3/8/16 8:00 AM

It's tax season! Feeling overwhelmed? Do demands feel like they never stops and tasks just keep piling up? To-do lists are ongoing for most people and sometimes it seems like the list just keeps getting longer from week to week. Sometimes there simply just isn’t enough time to get everything done. Even if you do have time to check everything off your to-do list, it is often easier to hire someone else to complete certain tasks for you.

Outsourcing things is a good way to delegate certain parts of your life – especially things that you are not good at or are unfamiliar with. This will not only save you time but it can sometimes save you from big headaches later down the road. For example, if you have a nanny working with your family, you know how important it is to prepare end of year taxes accurately and in a timely manner. If you don’t, you could end up facing steep fines or other fees for errors that could have been avoided if you just outsourced the task in the first place.
