Household Employer Tax Responsibilities:
Your home is your employee's workplace. As a household employer, you're required to comply with employment laws and taxes. This means you have to file new hire reports, file and pay federal and state employment taxes, and provide W2 statements at the end of the year. And this is all in addition to your weekly payroll calculations!

With Nest Payroll, we handle the taxing work for you. At some point in the future, your employee may not be able to work and could file for unemployment (or disability benefits in some states). By paying right you're helping to shield yourself from lawsuits, penalties and fines.

Employees get critical benefits: hard-earned Social Security and Medicare credits and unemployment benefits. Work history enables the basics of financial inclusion like obtaining a loan or renting an apartment. Treating your household employees as the professionals they are is best for your family.

Finally convenient household employee payroll

I’ve been paying my nanny with Nest payroll for months and it’s been great. I add up hours on Friday when it’s still fresh in mind, and the nanny gets paid immediately. I do it on my phone on my schedule, not on the computer when the pay service is ready. Convenience matters!
