How to file 2020 Au Pair’s income tax?

Au Pairs are required to file U.S. individual tax returns and pay taxes.  The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) considers Au Pairs to be an “employee” of the Host Family, even though they are in the United States on a “cultural exchange” visa.  For more information regarding how the IRS classifies Au Pairs and taxes click here

Welcome to use Tax Forms and Instructions to fill the Au Pair’s Tax return.

Au Pairs need to calculate their earnings from January 1 through December 31, 2020 (do not include any earnings from 2019 or 2021) . Using your Au Pair Log or other record of your earnings, add all the weekly stipend amounts that you received from your host family during the calendar year 2020. The standard Au Pair earns a weekly stipend of $195.75. Au Pairs can multiply the number of weeks they have been an Au Pair in the US during 2020 by their weekly stipend.

Then, Au Pairs can use a tax table to find amount they own, pay the taxes by phone, by check or money order, online, or using IRS2GoApp, and mail it to IRS or submit electronically. The due date for filing is APRIL 15, 2021.
