Paperwork is a critical part of being a nanny employer. There are both federal and state forms to be filed, when hiring your first nanny and regularly after that, and of course taxes to be paid. Because federal regulations are often changing and each state has their own requirements, I strongly suggest you contact a nanny tax company for help with the paperwork. They can help get you set up and if you want continued support, file the regular paperwork for you.
