How do I know how much to pay my nanny?
You and your nanny must come to an agreement about how much pay she will receive for her work. Typically you would look at the market rate in your area, the individual’s qualifications, any benefits you are offering beyond pay and the job requirements. Only you and your nanny can resolve these issues by discussing and agreeing to them. You can read our Sample Work Agreement which covers many important issues when hiring a nanny. This can be a great way to explore these issues and you can customize the agreement for your particular situation.
Once you have agreed upon the rate of pay, The Nanny Tax Company will calculate how much you should pay your employee, whether you withhold the taxes from her gross pay or if you pay her taxes on top of her net (take home) pay.
