If you’re a freelance or self-employed babysitter, chances are you won’t receive a 1099-MISC or W-2 form. This means you’ll need to be aware of your self-employed babysitter taxes. Unless you’re considered a household employee, you’ll generally pay the full portion of social security and Medicare taxes (a.k.a. FICA).

However, being self-employed lets you claim certain tax write-offs to reduce your tax burden. Thankfully, we’ve compiled some tax write-offs for babysitters below so you can claim more deductions and pay less taxes!
