Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
When you pay at least $2,000 in wages to a household worker, you must:
As an employer, you pay a 6.2 percent Social Security tax on your employee’s earnings and a 1.45 percent
Medicare tax on earnings. Employees pay the same tax rates.
You will need to file Schedule H with yoru return.
Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response. (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES)
