CCAP and APIA have great resources available online for their Au Pairs. Check out the instruction sheets here for CCAP and here for APIA. The IRS increased the standard deduction this year to $4000, which means more money stays in the Au Pair’s pocket than last year. In addition, you can now pay your taxes online! This is definitely convenient for Au Pairs that need to pay their taxes internationally.
