We have been talking about taxes at our Coffee Meetings since January and the deadline for filing is approaching.
Here are some of the basic questions:
Who is supposed to file taxes? – All au pairs who made $3950 or more in the calendar year (Jan 1 – Dec 31.) Au pairs who made less than $3950, are not required to file a tax return for 2014.
Will all au pairs have to pay something? – No, it depends on when you arrived and how much money you earned last year.
When are 2014 taxes due? – April 15, 2015
Where can I get the tax form? – 1040NR-EZ Form
Where can I get the instruction booklet? – 1040NR-EZ Booklet
Where can I get detailed information and see a sample au pair tax form? – APIA Tax Info for Au Pairs *Important note – This tax info document contains a very helpful sample filled out tax form. It will open properly in all browsers except Firefox. I suggest you open this in Chrome, Safari or IE*
