Family child care is a business probably more unique than any other. Tax professionals who serve them must understand how tax and business rules affect the family child care business owner. This course will focus on several specialized areas that can make the difference between success and failure for a family child care provider: hiring employees (including family members), setting up a §105 medical reimbursement plan, identifying the pros and cons of the various business structures, choosing retirement plans for child care providers and distinguishing between the rules for nannies/household help and family child care providers. Be sure you’re covering all the bases for your clients in this specialized industry.
Upon completion of this on-demand webinar, you will be able to:
  • Identify whether family child care workers are employees or independent contractors
  • Comply with special rules to follow when hiring family members
  • Identify the tax benefits §105 plan when hiring family members
  • Evaluate the pros and cons of the various business structures, incorporating the unique rules for family child care: sole proprietor, partnership, LLC, S and C corporation
  • Determine the appropriateness of the various IRA plans for family child care providers
  • Distinguish between the tax rules affecting nannies/household help and family child care providers
