When a family hires a caregiver to work in the home, the family is considered a household employer. Through CareFamily, you would be hired directly by the family and would therefore be employed by them. This has some direct implications when it comes to tax compliance.
Misconceptions about Taxes
Even though you are privately hired, you still needs to file taxes. Whether you are paid by the hour, the day, or the job, you still must file taxes. If you don’t, you could risk investigation and legal fees.
The good news is that CareFamily handles all of this seamlessly for you.
How CareFamily Helps You Manage Taxes
Luckily, with CareFamily filing taxes is safe and easy. You will not receive any tax documents from the family because all of that is provided by CareFamily and our outside payroll company.
All caregivers will receive a W-2 at the end of the year, and CareFamily promises that everything will be delivered on time so that you never have to worry about late fees.
We want your focus to be on providing excellent service. Beyond your job, all that is required of you is to log your hours. We handle the rest. At the end of the year, all required documents will be given to you on behalf of the employer.
This is just one of the ways we help protect caregivers legally and financially.
