A Letter To My Future Daughter-In-Law

Letter to DILEver wonder if the job you’re doing now will turn your little angel into a responsible adult – or someone else’s slacker? Our team’s Associate Creative Director Holly (and mom of two boys!) wrote a letter to her sons’ future wife, explaining how she made some tough decisions with “her” in mind.

Read Holly’s letter, then we’d love your thoughts…at what point does helping our kids actually hurt who they become in life?

Schedule H & Nanny Taxes!

webinar 1We’re right in the middle of tax season and most Americans are busy preparing their personal income tax returns. If you’re a household employer, this is information you need to know!

As a household employer, you need to make sure your Form 1040 also has a Schedule H attached to it. A Schedule H is a form used to report Social Security, Medicare, unemployment and income taxes withheld from a nanny, personal assistant, senior caregiver or other household employee.

The total household employment taxes you paid for 2014 must be entered on line 60a on your personal income tax return. If you forget, the IRS may come calling for the additional taxes you failed to report. If you have any questions about the Schedule H, please give us a call at (888) 273-3356 or email the team at info@myhomepay.com. We’re here to help!

Classifieds is on the BigTent App, just in time for spring cleaning!

iphone new classifiedsMoms, we’ll admit it-we really like when things are quick and easy. We also really, really like de-cluttering the attics, basements, garages…but when things are in good condition, it breaks our heart to toss them to the curb!

Classifieds on the BigTent mobile app is here to help! The Classifieds is a safe, easy way to sell the items your family no longer needs to other BigTent users, and it’s the perfect new addition to our mobile app. You can log into your BigTent account, snap a picture of the item, post information about it, and with a click of a button its posted for others to see and purchase. It is that easy!

You can also log on and search through what others are selling-find yourself needing new hockey equipment, a new stroller, or maybe a piece of furniture perfect for a playroom, but don’t want to spend a ton on something your kids will grow out of? Check out the Classifieds and see what mommies in your area have posted-you could find just what you need without having to break the bank.

We want you to love Classifieds as much as we do, so please post any feedback about the experience for our team to hear. Happy selling/shopping!
