     At Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency we take pride in providing a comprehensive family experience, including helping families navigate how to pay their domestic employee legally. This task can be the most daunting task when a family moves to hire a domestic employee. Luckily for your family, Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency is here to help.

     To legally pay a nanny or domestic employee, you must pay your nanny or domestic employee by w-2. 1099s are illegal in the nanny and domestic agency. You can pay the nanny as a w-2 employee through a professional payroll service or manage the withholdings yourself . We suggest using the payroll company that is the best for your family. We also recommend that you reach out to your accountant or GTM to ensure you are making the right choice for your family.
