The Schedule H form is the IRS document that allows people who employ household workers to determine and report the applicable household employment taxes. The form doesn’t exactly fill itself out, even with our software support, but it’s still generally a better alternative than the standard employment filings that fall under forms 940, 941, 943, and 944. To this point, if you already have an employment filing system in place for other types of employees.
Household Employee Hiring
Even before filling out your end-of-year Schedule H form, there are certain steps you’ll want to take when you first hire a household employee. Specifically, you’ll want to verify the worker is able to legally work in the U.S. and you’ll want to determine how much federal and state payroll and income taxes you should withhold from the employee’s pay. You can do this by using forms I-9 and W-4, respectively.
