  • Nanny tax for multiple nannies

    Anyone know the tax requirements for a second nanny?  We have a primary nanny that we pay tax for, as she earns well in excess of the reporting thresholds ($1k/quarter, $2k/annual).  We are looking to hire a second backup/date night nanny and she won't exceed the threshold for the quarter/year.  I am presuming that the tax requirements are per nanny, not in for the nannies in aggregate, but not sure...

    You don't have to withhold or pay any federal taxes for your second nanny that earns less than $2,000/year.  You will however need to pay federal and state unemployment insurance taxes for the second nanny.  The Unemployment Insurance looks at how much you are paying domestic employees combined.
