When accountants think of household employment, they typically think of the tax requirements. However, taxes are only half of the compliance puzzle. The other half – where much of the risk lies – is tied to the labor law regulations that apply to domestic employers. These requirements are nuanced, constantly changing, and different from those that apply in the commercial employment world.
Recent Domestic Worker Bill of Rights legislation as well as new state and municipal wage & hour laws have introduced additional requirements, spanning several disciplines – payroll, tax, insurance, and labor law. Tom Breedlove, Sr. Director of Care.com HomePay, the country’s leading household employment specialist, will provide expert guidance on how tax professionals can mitigate risk and avoid time-consuming and expensive mistakes.
After this presentation participants will be able to:
- Recognize key changes and trends driving household employment
- Identify opportunities to help clients mitigate tax, insurance and legal risk
- Implement strategies to help household employer clients save money
- Access free tools and resources that can add value to your practice
Program level: Basic (no prerequisites required).
