What does “we will get something on the books” mean?
If you have the best Nanny candidate in the whole wide world you should do what’s best for both you and her– pay her on the books. Park Slope Parents takes paying on the books very seriously; it’s the law. If you pay a nanny more than $2100 in a year (in 2018) you are required to pay Social Security and Medicare. You may be able to use a pre-tax flexible spending account and child and dependent tax credit which can help offset the extra cost of paying on the books.

Also included would be any deductions required by court order to withhold and submit payments from an employee’s income. Individual states could have specific laws about cash payments which employers would be required to follow. It’s up to you to decide you are not paying on the books, not your Nanny. The employer (you) are responsible for the fines associated with not paying on the books as well as back taxes, penalties, overtime pay and other expenses- after the fact. Nannies, however, may not understand the short and long term benefits of paying on the books such as Social Security benefits, earned income credits, unemployment, and Medicaid.

Working under the table for cash is commonly associated with jobs such as babysitting, yard work or bar tending. Many small manufacturing shops dotted across the country slip cash in the payroll check envelope to “help” employees with un-taxed cash. These employees seldom complain about working conditions, low wages or lack of benefits.
