Household employee taxes are commonly referred to as "nanny taxes" because they are most often applied to hired childcare providers. However, they apply to any individual(s) who you have paid $1,900 or more in one calendar year for regular work in your home. Examples include:

•     Maids

•     Babysitters

•     Gardeners
