    Taxes. We all hate them, but there is no avoiding them- even in the world of childcare.

    Or is there???

    Let’s see if you can pass our “Nanny Taxes” test on who doesn’t have to give Uncle Sam a cut!


    Part-time summer nanny who only works 12 weeks while kids are on break. Paid $200/week.


    Part-time nanny who comes every Tuesday so a stay at home parent can get out sans kids for just a couple hours. Paid $35/week.


    Regular date night babysitter who comes almost every Saturday night. Usually paid about $50.

    #2 but only if there is no other income. The family doesn’t have to pay taxes on anything under $2100 but the nanny still needs to declare ALL income.

    This is kind of a trick question, because you have to report all income, I doubt anyone could live on any of these scenarios solely. However, if it were the only source of income #2 ($35 x 52) is less than the threshold and would not need to be taxed.
