If you've ever filed your income tax online, you're probably comfortable (or at least aware) of the different types of accounting software available to you. The best thing about these software packages is that they include everything you need to file your nanny tax forms. Instead of downloading forms from different websites, visiting government offices for the forms, and making sure you have the right forms to begin with, these software programs offer one-stop resource guidance. You can do an Internet search for popular nanny software programs and either order the disc in the mail, or purchase the downloadable version that you can access immediately.
Nanny software programs come with easy-to-follow instructions and all of the nanny tax forms to help you calculate accurate nanny tax deductions. Instead of stacking a bunch of paperwork on your lap and using an online nanny tax calculator, the software uses the equivalent of a built-in nanny tax calculator. The software asks you the simple questions and does the hard math behind the scenes, so you don't have to.
Nanny employers fall into two categories: those who think they're accountants and those who know how to avoid unnecessary stress by purchasing nanny software. Which camp do you belong to?
