Hrblock com myreturnstatus How To Get Tax HelpLow Income Taxpayer Clinics Do You Have a Household Employee? You have a household employee if you hired someone to do household work and that worker is your employee. Hrblock com myreturnstatus The worker is your employee if you can control not only what work is done, but how it is done. Hrblock com myreturnstatus If the worker is your employee, it does not matter whether the work is full time or part time or that you hired the worker through an agency or from a list provided by an agency or association. Hrblock com myreturnstatus It also does not matter whether you pay the worker on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis, or by the job. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Example. Hrblock com myreturnstatus You pay Betty Shore to babysit your child and do light housework 4 days a week in your home. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Betty follows your specific instructions about household and child care duties. Hrblock com myreturnstatus You provide the household equipment and supplies that Betty needs to do her work. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Betty is your household employee. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Household work. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   Household work is work done in or around your home. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Some examples of workers who do household work are: Babysitters, Caretakers, House cleaning workers, Domestic workers, Drivers, Health aides, Housekeepers, Maids, Nannies, Private nurses, and Yard workers. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Workers who are not your employees. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   If only the worker can control how the work is done, the worker is not your employee but is self-employed. Hrblock com myreturnstatus A self-employed worker usually provides his or her own tools and offers services to the general public in an independent business. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   A worker who performs child care services for you in his or her home generally is not your employee. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   If an agency provides the worker and controls what work is done and how it is done, the worker is not your employee. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Example. Hrblock com myreturnstatus You made an agreement with John Peters to care for your lawn. Hrblock com myreturnstatus John runs a lawn care business and offers his services to the general public. Hrblock com myreturnstatus He provides his own tools and supplies, and he hires and pays any helpers he needs. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Neither John nor his helpers are your household employees. Hrblock com myreturnstatus More information. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   More information about who is an employee is in Publication 15-A, Employer's Supplemental Tax Guide.

Hrblock com myreturnstatus You must complete the employer section by examining documents presented by the employee as evidence of his or her identity and employment eligibility. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Acceptable documents to establish identity and employment eligibility are listed on Form I-9. Hrblock com myreturnstatus You should keep the completed Form I-9 in your own records. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Do not submit it to the IRS, the USCIS, or any other government or other entity. Hrblock com myreturnstatus The form must be kept available for review upon notice by an authorized U. Hrblock com myreturnstatus S. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Government official. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Two copies of Form I-9 are contained in the Handbook for Employers (Form M-274) published by the USCIS. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Call the USCIS at 1-800-870-3676 to order the Handbook for Employers; or you may download the handbook at www. Hrblock com myreturnstatus uscis.

Hrblock com myreturnstatus   You figure social security and Medicare taxes on the social security and Medicare wages you pay your employee. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   If you pay your household employee cash wages of $1,900 or more in 2014, all cash wages you pay to that employee in 2014 (regardless of when the wages were earned) up to $117,000 are social security wages and all cash wages are Medicare wages.

Hrblock com myreturnstatus An employee who is under the age of 18 at any time during the year. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Exception: Count these wages if providing household services is the employee's principal occupation.

Hrblock com myreturnstatus Also, if your employee's cash wages reach $117,000 (maximum wages subject to social security tax) in 2014, do not count any wages you pay that employee during the rest of the year as social security wages to figure social security tax. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Continue to count the employee's cash wages as Medicare wages to figure Medicare tax. Hrblock com myreturnstatus If you provide your employee transit passes to commute to your home, do not count the value of the transit passes (up to $130 per month for 2014) as wages.

Hrblock com myreturnstatus If you reimburse your employee for transit passes or parking, you may be able to exclude the reimbursement amounts. Hrblock com myreturnstatus See Publication 15-B, Employer's Tax Guide to Fringe Benefits, for special requirements for this exclusion. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Withholding the employee's share. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   You should withhold the employee's share of social security and Medicare taxes if you expect to pay your household employee cash wages of $1,900 or more in 2014. Hrblock com myreturnstatus However, if you prefer to pay the employee's share yourself, see Not withholding the employee's share, later. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   You can withhold the employee's share of the taxes even if you are not sure your employee's cash wages will be $1,900 or more in 2014. Hrblock com myreturnstatus If you withhold the taxes but then actually pay the employee less than $1,900 in cash wages for the year, you should repay the employee. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   Withhold 7. Hrblock com myreturnstatus 65% (6. Hrblock com myreturnstatus 2% for social security tax and 1. Hrblock com myreturnstatus 45% for Medicare tax) from each payment of social security and Medicare wages. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Generally, you can use Table 3 to figure the proper amount to withhold. Hrblock com myreturnstatus You will pay the amount withheld to the IRS with your share of the taxes. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Do not withhold any social security tax after your employee's social security wages for the year reach $117,000. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Table 3.

Hrblock com myreturnstatus    You may either adjust or claim a refund of an overpayment of social security and Medicare taxes on a previously filed Schedule H. Hrblock com myreturnstatus However, if you are correcting an overpayment and are filing the corrected Schedule H within 90 days of the expiration of the period of limitations, you can only claim a refund of the overpayment.

Hrblock com myreturnstatus Additional Medicare Tax. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   Generally, you may not correct an error in Additional Medicare Tax withholding for wages paid to employees in a prior year unless it is an administrative error. Hrblock com myreturnstatus An administrative error occurs if the amount you entered on Schedule H is not the amount you actually withheld. Hrblock com myreturnstatus For example, if the Additional Medicare Tax actually withheld was incorrectly reported on Schedule H due to a mathematical or transposition error, this would be an administrative error. Hrblock com myreturnstatus   Any underwithheld Additional Medicare Tax must be recovered from employees on or before the last day of the calendar year in which the underwithholding occurred. Hrblock com myreturnstatus Any excess Additional Medicare Tax withholding must be repaid or reimbursed to employees before the end of the calendar year in which it was withheld.
