How to fill an Au Pair’s income tax?

Ophelia’s Diary.

I just finished my Au Pair income taxes. At first, I felt it was so hard to fill out the tax form, but as I already got it done it’s super easy now. So I would like to share my experience with other Au Pairs.Au pair Ophelia in class

Then you won’t have problems with you tax return!Au Pair taxes

First calculate how much stipend you made during 2013. If you earned more than $3900, you need to pay taxes. A 1040NR-­EZ form need to be submitted before April 15, 2014. You don’t need a W­ 2 form from your host family.

Here is a link that will tell you how to fill out your 1040NR­-EZ tax form step by step.

After you finish the form, print it out, sign your name and date. You can put a payment together with the tax form in an envelope then mail it. Or you can choose pay it online. I mailed the payment with my tax form. You can find the mail address on the third page of 1040NR­-EZ form instructions. When you mail it, make sure you get a Certified Mail Receipt, it will be a proof shows that you do mail your taxes form before April 15, 2014.Au Pair

Good luck with your tax return!
