Do we need to collect W-9 Forms from sitters?
No need to! When you pay through SitterTree, we will take care of all tax documentation for our sitters.
How are sitters paid?
Churches pay SitterTree, and we take care of the rest! At the end of each job, your sitter will close the job and send you a summary of the hours worked. She has up to 24 hours to do this. Once you receive the summary, you have 48 hours to approve or dispute the sitter's hours. If no action is taken after 48 hours, SitterTree will automatically close the job and your card will be charged according to the sitter's summary. If you dispute the sitter's hours, your card will be charged for the booked time and any additional hours will be reviewed before a charge is made.
Are we expected to tip?
There is no set expectation, but who doesn’t like a tip? Sitters receive tips from the majority of SitterTree families. Some round up, others use a percentage, while some don't tip at all. It's up to you!
