    Unhappy Paying a live in Nanny properly

    Hello all.

    I searched and searched and found nothing on this.
    CRA / Ontario ministry of labour websites are criptic in their explanation.

    I can deduct $31.70/week for room for my nanny.
    (for reference, nanny works 44hrs and gets paid bi-weeky.)

    When using the CRA online calaculator, how do I use this number?
    Which check box? "Other deduction amounts approved by a tax services office" vs "Taxable benefits and allowances provided to your employee"
    If the latter, then is the benefit insurable for EI? (does insurable = deduct EI?)

    However, according to the Ontario ministry of labour website (domestic employee) (sorry, can't post links yet), I am suppose to lower her hourly rate by ($63.40/number of hours worked)?

    My questions is how do I use the $31.70 amount?

    As an exercise, I put in my nanny is paid $1000/bi-weekly.
    Chaning the location of the $63.40 deduction really changes how much my nanny nets, as well as, how much I must remit to the CRA.

    Hope you've sorted this out already, but if not, that's an after-tax deduction. Run your numbers through the CRA calculator and deduct the $31.70 off the bottom line.

    There is at least one other hread that discussed this, and recommended using payroll services of some kind, such as
