Nanny Compensation


Welcome Mommybites Moms!

Mommybites has been receiving more and more questions from parents who have used our nanny board about paying their nannies “on and off the books”, the legal ramifications of this, and how to go about determining the best and easiest way to pay their caregiver. So we decided to do a little digging and seek out some more information on this topic. Here’s what we discovered – did you know:

  • Paying your nanny on the books can actually save you money?
  • It’s illegal not to provide your nanny with a W-2?
  • Your nanny does NOT have to be a US citizen to pay them on the books?

If you didn’t know, you’re not alone. Many families don’t have all the answers when it comes to the ins-and-outs of hiring a nanny (because it can be downright confusing!). So, Mommybites has decided to connect parents who would like more information with a company called HomePay, better known as the “nanny tax” specialists! They’ve been around since 1992, and have worked with over 55,000 families all across the U.S.

So if you have ANY questions about any of these issues, please feel free to call them for a FREE consultation at 888-273-3356. They can tell you about nanny payroll and taxes, give you help with budgeting, and help create your nanny employment agreement.

You can also email their team with any questions at [email protected]

Further, they have very kindly offered Mommybites moms $50 off if you end up deciding to use their service!  Be sure to ask them when you sign up.
