This is usually state unemployment insurance. Is your nanny going to be a W2 employee? Also, what state are you located in?

SUI is due on the first $8500 of employee's income. If you are a new employer, yoiu will be using a new account rate. You will need to contact the Maryland comptroller ( ) office for this rate, since the published info says that it varies from 1- 2.6%
