HomePay service fee and tax collection schedule

By using HomePay for your household employment needs, you’re offloading the tax, payroll and compliance responsibilities for your nanny or caregiver to us. However, one of the responsibilities you have is making sure your account is funded when it’s time for us to make tax payments to the IRS, make tax payments to the state and collect fees for using our service. 

We will always email you well in advance of any collection date so you know how much we need to debit from your account and when that debit will occur. But we also want to be completely transparent with what we’re doing, so please bookmark the schedule below so you can feel prepared for the 2022 tax year.

Note: Not every state follows the exact schedule below. Don’t worry – we’ll email you before each debit!
