Are we responsible for paying taxes?

Once you hire a household helper, the helper will become your employee. The family is responsible for the helper's compensation. Because we are not an agency and do not employ helpers, we do not provide a W-2 or 1099 for helpers. Each user is responsible for any tax, withholding, or reporting. As we are unable to provide legal or tax advice on payment, please consult a tax accountant or attorney for more information about helper compensation.
