You have a household employee if you hired someone to do household work and that worker is your employee. Irs 1040x The worker is your employee if you can control not only what work is done, but how it is done. Irs 1040x 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. Irs 1040x It also does not matter whether you pay the worker on an hourly, daily, or weekly basis, or by the job. Irs 1040x Example. Irs 1040x You pay Betty Shore to babysit your child and do light housework 4 days a week in your home. Irs 1040x Betty follows your specific instructions about household and child care duties. Irs 1040x You provide the household equipment and supplies that Betty needs to do her work. Irs 1040x Betty is your household employee. Irs 1040x Household work. Irs 1040x   Household work is work done in or around your home. Irs 1040x 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. Irs 1040x Workers who are not your employees. Irs 1040x   If only the worker can control how the work is done, the worker is not your employee but is self-employed. Irs 1040x A self-employed worker usually provides his or her own tools and offers services to the general public in an independent business. Irs 1040x   A worker who performs child care services for you in his or her home generally is not your employee. Irs 1040x   If an agency provides the worker and controls what work is done and how it is done, the worker is not your employee. Irs 1040x Example. Irs 1040x You made an agreement with John Peters to care for your lawn. Irs 1040x John runs a lawn care business and offers his services to the general public. Irs 1040x He provides his own tools and supplies, and he hires and pays any helpers he needs. Irs 1040x Neither John nor his helpers are your household employees. Irs 1040x More information.

Irs 1040x No later than the first day of work, the employee must complete the employee section of the form by providing certain required information and attesting to his or her current work eligibility status in the United States. Irs 1040x You must complete the employer section by examining documents presented by the employee as evidence of his or her identity and employment eligibility. Irs 1040x Acceptable documents to establish identity and employment eligibility are listed on Form I-9. Irs 1040x You should keep the completed Form I-9 in your own records. Irs 1040x Do not submit it to the IRS, the USCIS, or any other government or other entity. Irs 1040x The form must be kept available for review upon notice by an authorized U. Irs 1040x S. Irs 1040x Government official. Irs 1040x Two copies of Form I-9 are contained in the Handbook for Employers (Form M-274) published by the USCIS. Irs 1040x Call the USCIS at 1-800-870-3676 to order the Handbook for Employers; or you may download the handbook at www. Irs 1040x uscis. Irs 1040x gov.

Irs 1040x The employee must give you a completed Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate. Irs 1040x If you and your employee have agreed to withholding, either of you may end the agreement by letting the other know in writing.

Certain workers can take the earned income credit (EIC) on their federal income tax return. Irs 1040x This credit reduces their tax or allows them to receive a payment from the IRS.

Irs 1040x If you give your employee that copy by February 2, 2015 (as discussed under Form W-2 under What Forms Must You File, later), you do not have to give the employee any other notice about the EIC. Irs 1040x   If you do not give your employee Copy B of the Form W-2, your notice about the EIC can be any of the following items. Irs 1040x A substitute Form W-2 with the same EIC information on the back of the employee's copy that is on Copy B of the Form W-2.

Irs 1040x   You must give your household employee a notice about the EIC if you agree to withhold federal income tax from the employee's wages (as discussed earlier under Do You Need To Withhold Federal Income Tax?) and the income tax withholding tables show that no tax should be withheld. Irs 1040x Even if not required, you are encouraged to give the employee a notice about the EIC if his or her 2014 wages are less than $46,997 ($52,427 if married filing jointly). Irs 1040x How Do You Make Tax Payments? When you file your 2014 federal income tax return in 2015, attach Schedule H (Form 1040) to your Form 1040, 1040NR, 1040-SS, or 1041.

Irs 1040x Add these household employment taxes to your income tax. Irs 1040x Pay the amount due by April 15, 2015.

Irs 1040x Adjust the overpayment.

Irs 1040x Additional Medicare Tax. Irs 1040x   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. Irs 1040x An administrative error occurs if the amount you entered on Schedule H is not the amount you actually withheld. Irs 1040x 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. Irs 1040x   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. Irs 1040x 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. Irs 1040x Additional information.
