Sittercity.com gives tools to alleviate the stress of trying to figure out the 'Nanny Tax'
CHICAGO, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- "Nanny taxes" and "simple" - there are two things parents never imagined they'd see in the same sentence. And with some of America's most exciting female political figures having issues due to this type of tax, understanding caregiver taxes is clearly an issue. That's why Sittercity.com, America's largest and most trusted online source for caregivers, is making tax simplicity a reality for its members through a new partnership with SurePayroll, a complete payroll and tax filing service for employers of domestic help. Gone is the uncertainty of whether or not a parent is required to pay, the nerve-wracking intricacies of calculating withholdings, and the maddening cluster of paperwork and W2s. In its place is a simple system that completely streamlines the entire process of payroll and taxes for Sittercity members quickly and easily.
All Sittercity members have to do is create a SurePayroll account and the system then manages all of the nanny's wages and taxes. It keeps track of the nanny's entire payment history online, deposits money directly into the nanny's checking account, allows parents to print checks from home, and automatically calculates and files parents' state, federal and local taxes with guaranteed accuracy.
"While speaking with our members and caregivers, we learned that they had many questions about how to pay taxes on full-time help and how to take taxes out of paychecks," said Genevieve Thiers, founder and CEO of Sittercity.com. "Most had no idea taxes could be due on their nanny." After researching many different options, it was clear that SurePayroll was the best solution to help our members get all of those questions answered and manage their nanny's wages and taxes with total ease."
"Our mission is to provide the friendliest and simplest payroll experience on earth," said Michael Alter, President of SurePayroll. "We are the first completely online payroll and payroll tax-filing solution, and our revolutionary services truly benefit the home employer."
Sittercity members who enroll in the program now are being offered one free month on SurePayroll as part of an enrollment special. For more information on Sittercity and their partnership with SurePayroll, visit <http://www.surepayroll.com/partners/sittercity/>.
