Does the job, but UI is outdated and the help sections were still very confusing

Pros: It was the cheapest solution I could find for a software to pay a household employee and file the appropriate forms and taxes. It does the job, but it could definitely stand an update to the look and user interface.

Cons: The info available to get it set up and do ongoing reporting and tax filing isn't super helpful. It's hard to feel very confident that it's all correct when there isn't much in the way of explanation available in the software, their website or help section. I actually have my accountant double-check everything when I file my annual taxes.

Overall: Let's me pay our nanny legally by calculating all appropriate withholdings and providing the necessary forms and reports to file quarterly and annual tax and employment paperwork. However, it's not super user-friendly, probably because it doesn't have much competition so there's no incentive to update the program.
