The Nanny Tax

It’s easier than you think to get stuck owing the "nanny tax." Did you pay a babysitter working in your home more than $1,500 in 2007? The figure is $1,600 in 2008. Well, unless that babysitter is your parent, spouse, under-age-21 child or someone under age 18 whose principal occupation is not household employment (a student, for example), then you owe the tax. SmartMoney helps you calculate your nanny tax.

Prospective Babysitter Checklist

Before you hire a babysitter or extended caregiver for your children, you should ask a few important questions. You may want to invite the babysitter over a few times while you are able to be at home, so you can monitor the relationship between your children and the babysitter. See how the babysitter reacts, how your children respond, and get an overall idea on how they get along with each other. This checklist from PrintableChecklists.com is a great guide for interviewing your next sitter.
