Household Employment Taxes

If, while you lived in Indiana, you paid cash wages during 2019 to an individual who is not your spouse, your child under age 21, your parent, and/or an employee under age 18; and the individual worked in and around your home as a baby-sitter, nanny, health aide, private nurse, maid, caretaker, yard worker or someone who does similar domestic duties, then that individual may be defined as your employee.
