Top 6 Reasons Why You Should Use A Nanny Agency

Families in St. Louis have been using TLC for Kids to help them find nannies for over twenty-five years and so should you!  Please read the top reasons why working with an agency is the best way to find a nanny.

1. A nanny agency is much safer to use because they ONLY send you vetted nannies who they themselves have extensively screened and personally interviewed.   

2. Working with a nanny agency is a more personal process because you will work with a placement counselor who will get to know you and find out what is uniquely important to your family and will send you candidates that fit your pre-determined qualifications.
3. A nanny agency gives you a manageable number of candidates. Fewer is better so that parents are not overwhelmed by a sea of possibilities.

4. A nanny agency saves you a lot of time and energy sifting through sometimes hundreds of candidates.

5. A nanny agency will have you working with a placement counselor who will step you through the whole process of interviewing and negotiating employment agreements; will provide payroll and tax direction; and who will be a helpful resource throughout the period of the nanny’s employment.

6. Families who want the best nannies use agencies because the highest quality nannies work exclusively with nanny agencies. They do not want to call strangers from a blind posting. Agencies offer them a safe, professional representation.

Payroll Tax Holiday Alert

TLC for Kids strives to stay up to date on everything salary or tax related for in home care.

We recently received this update from 4nannytaxes and wanted to share it with you.

The Payroll Tax Holiday that was passed in December 2010 will most likely not be extended for 2013.  Therefore, this means that a nanny’s paycheck will most likely be slightly smaller.

Kathy Webb, owner of 4nannytaxes explains:

“In Dec 2010 Congress passed a ‘temporary’ one year payroll tax holiday, reducing the worker’s contribution to Social Security by 2%. It was extended until Dec. 2012 and all indications are it will not be renewed.

So a nanny who is paid $500 a week will likely have $10 more deducted from her paycheck starting in January.”

We will keep you posted when a final ruling comes from Congress.
