Howdy!

The folks over at LBYM suggested I post this question here. Long story short (I hope), currently and in years past, we've employed young ladies (between 17 and 35) to help tutor the Ducklings after school and help them with homework, laundry (teaching them to do their own), and taking them to extra-curricular activities. It's been easy, I've had each tutor set up in Quickbooks and getting the proper taxes and stuff (SS,FICA, etc) integrated into their paychecks. Works well.

Now I have an even bigger problem. Current tutor will be going to college this fall and we've found a new tutor. However, she is a German resident under a 3-year student visa. She would be working part-time like the others have (12-20 hours per week, average). But she obviously doesn't have an SSN (duh), but I'm not sure how to attack everything else, and I assume taxes need to be paid here, even as a foreign worker.

Any suggestions, or BETTER boards to hit to address this topic?

Thanks, Fools!
