When you hire an independent cleaning person, there are some important requirements to be aware of. According to Internal Revenue Service Publication 926, Household Employer’s Tax Guide, if you hire someone to do household work and if you control not only what work is done, but how it is done, you are considered to have a household employee. If you are going to hire a household employee, it is important to understand your obligations as a household employer. For more information about household employees, see IRS publication 926 at http://www.irs.gov.
If you are a domestic employer and pay your employee in cash or off-the-books, you are liable for unpaid taxes. Furthermore, your employee is not contributing to their Social Security account and may have difficulty establishing credit.
Here is an overview of requirements when you pay a household employee $1,400 or more a year:
When you hire a household employee:
Find out if the person can legally work in the United States and file Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.
Obtain an employer identification number and possibly a state number.
When you pay your household employee:
Withhold 7.65% for social security and Medicare taxes.
Pay 7.65% for employer’s share of social security and Medicare taxes.
Withhold federal income tax and possibly state tax.
File federal and possibly state unemployment returns and pay applicable taxes.
File and give your employee Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement.
File Schedule H (Form 1040), Household Employment, Taxes, and pay related taxes.
Review insurance requirements with your insurance agent.
