FamilyHelpandCare.com has partnered with Breedlove & Associates, an industry leader for 20 years, to provide families and care providers the answers and solutions to payroll tax questions and issues. Families who hire in home care providers are considered household employers, a very distinct employer classification which carries some very unique tax and legal obligations. Handling these obligations and compliance requirements with guaranteed accuracy is very important for both the family and care provider. By teaming up with Breedlove and Associates, FamilyHelpandCare.com (http://www.familyhelpandcare.com) is able to offer this guarantee of accuracy.
Breedlove & Associates is the nation’s leading payroll, tax and HR service for household employers. Since 1992, their comprehensive “nanny tax” service has eliminated all the work and worry for more than 20,000 families with nannies, senior caregivers and other types of domestic workers. “A household employer is defined as someone who pays an individual to perform duties in or around their home. Household employees include nannies, senior care providers, private nurses, housekeepers, gardeners, cooks, personal assistants, household managers, etc. It is a fairly common misperception – even among some general tax professionals – that household workers can be classified as independent contractors. This is illegal and can result in big, expensive problems with the IRS” explains Breedlove and Associates.
Household workers such as nannies, senior care providers, housekeepers, etc., should view themselves, and demand to be treated, as professionals. That means, among other things, making sure that they are paid legally. There are taxes that all citizens must pay, but with those taxes there are several very important benefits and protections. FamilyHelpandCare.com offers articles and tax information in their Resource Center at http://www.familyhelpandcare.com for both families and care providers. Breedlove and Associates offer a Nanny Tax video that explains the law, the process and their service in about 3 minutes; or use their free Nanny Tax Calculator available on FamilyHelpandCare.com to run personalized budgets and payroll scenarios. As a client of FamilyHelpandcare.com, you are invited to call 1-888-273-3356 for a free orientation from a Breedlove expert.
