2. You can hire an "nanny tax" accountant for ~$500 a year (maybe was more expensive a few years ago)
2) Yes, but it's the principle. I have to hire an accountant (zero added value for me) just to hire someone who actually does provide value to me. It shouldn't be this complicated. It was easier setting up an LLC, and if we could do that, we should not need an accountant for a nanny; guess not.
