All payments on Bambino are processed through a trusted third-party payment system and are not taxed. According to the IRS, income earned from babysitting, whether on a regular basis or only periodically, is taxable. The best practice is to always report income regardless of how it is earned, however, Bambino is not able to provide any additional tax advice. Bambino does not issue 1099s unless a sitter earns more than $20,000 and has more than 200 transactions, both in one calendar year.

We encourage you to consult with a qualified tax professional for any additional information relating to taxes.
