Household Employer (Nanny) Services

We provide household employer (nanny) payroll, payroll tax, and document management services in Washington and Oregon state. Household employers aren't limited to nannies; we also file for babysitters, specialty caregivers, tutors or seasonal or temporary care.


Nannies take care of the most important treasures in our lives. Since they take great care of your family, let's make sure your nanny is taken care of when it comes to their payroll & taxes. We make it easy so you don't stress. Our process is simple:


  1. Let us know your nanny's hours or you enter your nanny's hours using our online portal.

  2. We process your payroll on the dates of your choosing.

  3. Your nanny gets paid via direct deposit (new!), check, or Paypal.

  4. We file timely quarterly payroll tax reports and remit taxes on your behalf.

  5. At year-end, we issue a W-2 for your nanny and file your W-3 with the government.

We do the numbers -- you enjoy your family.
