Getting an desi nanny for baby. She wants to be paid in cash. How can I show it in tax? These people.. I tell you. Anyone had similar experience. What did you do?

Just pay her the amount she asks + her tax deductible. That way she gets her take home and you can show it in tax. You can’t have it both ways - cheap as well as tax deductible ...

Sorry to hijack, but how much is a nanny costing you? Will probably need to face a decision like this soon. To BCG1s point - might be better to just pay in cash then have the deal with that approach

Have been paying with cash for many years. Pro - save on taxes Con- cannot use flex account. Do the math both ways and see where you come amount ahead.

Is it legal?

EM1 depends on if you want live-in nanny or daytime one.

OP where do you look for your nanny. Word of mouth or did you post an ad somewhere.

Have a desi nanny as well. She initially (over a year ago) said under the table but now wants taxes deducted (so she can claim taxes end of year). You can pay her current salary post tax, there are sites where you can do these calculations. P2 - I had posted an ad for desi nanny on Sulekha and some parents only group on Facebook. Had also joined care.command searched on there.

A1- did both actually. There are agents who help you connect with nanny. But they got get their share.. lot of under table goes into this

OP so where did you post and where does one find these agents? I’m looking for one myself

Sulekha and check with other people in network who hired nanny. You can post an ad in few Indian cafes and stores. Seen there as well.

This is so ugh!

For those that are moms of younger kids, what are you doing / communicating in terms of travel for work? I’m currently on a non-travel project but starting to think about what could happen once I’m done and if I need to communicate anything to leadership in advance.

When did you stop traveling while expecting a child? My wife is due with our first in June and I am trying to plan for a conversation with my MD. Is the 34 week mark a fair ask?

So my wife basically said she doesn’t want to have sex anymore. Don’t want to do anything about it. After couple kids, doesn’t feel it anymore. Also said it wasn’t anything I did and there’s no one else. I understand women’s body changes after child birth but can’t help thinking it’s gonna suck being in a sexless marriage. We’re still attractive and haven’t turned into couch potatoes…yet Happy Thanksgiving!

I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part).

I need a bit of reassurance. My SO is ready (in the very near future) for a kiddo. I am ready for a kiddo... but...

Not nearly enough messages. Was a senior when I had a kid...so nice of KPMG to NOT tell me the way to properly submit for parental leave back in the day.

Anyone else randomly get mad at something that happened to you as a kid? For example, I was in a meeting this afternoon and out of nowhere, I reminded myself of my Little League days when my coach embarrassed me in front of my team for being the first baseman who couldn’t afford a first baseman’s glove. I mean I was playing the field just fine with a Nomar Garciaparra glove that was a little too small for my hand 🤷‍♂️

I’d like to know if I’m being stupid for being underpaid. I’m currently being paid 80k as an A2 in TAS (HCOL), however I’ve been an “acting senior” for the past 6 months. I have great flexibility and I’m treated well at my current firm. And my office is only 20mins away. If I left, I’d join as a senior and make 20k more, but I may give up flexibility, and the commute would be longer. I’m a single father with young kids, so flexibility is important to me. Career goals = partner. Any opinions?
