Scoring Good Credit
I'm coming up on my fifth year of nannying and have never dealt with taxes. It was great when I was starting at 17 but I'd like to break the cycle of relying on my mom's name and credit score for everything I want to do (car/insurance/apartment renting/etc). I'm not sure what the process is for figuring it all out. I know some employers will cover the taxes completely, but I assume that's suggested by the employers and not asked of them by the nanny? Is splitting the cost reasonable? What do my employers need to do? Is there a way to determine exactly what I would pay? I work four days a week, 12 hours a day and am salaried at $625/week with rounded up overtime at $13/hour (usually ~20 a month). I'm a planner and would like to have it all predetermined (if possible) before I mention so much as a word to my boss. I've been with this family part time since October and full time since November so I'm hoping to be "legit" by the year mark, or earlier if I can figure out the numbers. I'm a too-independent person, moved to a different state and live very well on my own for a year and a half now and am looking forward to relying on my own (eventual) credit score - so any advice is greatly appreciated!
