How much do nanny taxes cost the employer?

Nanny taxes cost less than you think. Generally, the employer’s contribution costs about 10% of the employee’s salary*. The good news is that tax credits can offset some or all of this cost. See How can I save money by paying nanny taxes for more information.

* This estimate will vary based on actual salary, annual unemployment tax rates and wage caps for the state you live in.
