But before he learned about affair I was feeling really good with our relationship and where we were going. Of course that all turned bad in part, of course, because of affair, but also he has seen many older texts and emails from then where I vented to a lot of people abut how much I was disliking him back then. (He found out about affair after seeing a text from a friend referencing it and then investigated further). Anyone else recover from something like this. He was no saint himself but not ready to call it quits considering the DCs. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The easiest way is through an online nanny payroll service. There are also accounting companies that have a lot of experience in household help.

I like the agency because I know they are on top of everything, including changes in tax law, and if the gov't ever has a question (it has happened), they are on top of it. I will look in my files for their bill. I think they charge a monthly fee for payroll & fee for each (quarterly) tax item they file. FYI, in the past, our first nanny just wanted to be paid her take home in a weekly check, and have us pay all taxes (hers & our share) and this was a disaster, because you don't know what she will file on her taxes at year end. She was always mildy disgruntled about anything she owed at year end (even though she was filing jointly w/ husband). To just withhold at the paycheck is much better, less confusion. [ Reply | More ]
