It is not unusual to be asked for proof of income at a babysitter’s position of you have applied for a loan, lease or entering into a rental agreement. The person at the other end of the line may want to know that you are capable of paying back the loan you intend to take or rent for the place you want to live in.
Proof of income letters are written by employers, in a formal manner. They provide proof to rent or loan authorities that an individual is working at a certain place and is earning the amount of money that she claims she is. Income letters act as official documents and must contain specific information so you must write them with care.
You should begin your letter by listing the recipient’s contact information at the beginning of the letter and state a subject. Addressing the recipient of the letter is important – you will need to ask the babysitter who it needs to be addressed to. Refrain from writing a To Whom You May Concern letter as adding credibility to your letter is important.
Provide information on how long the babysitter has been working for you and how much her salary is. You can add a few lines about the babysitter’s work ethics and reliability although this is not necessary to do. What follows is a babysitter proof of income letter sample to help you gauge what to write in one.

Subject: Proof of Income
Dear Mr. Daz:
This is with reference to Ms. Hannah Coleman who has worked as a babysitter for my children aged 1, 2 and 4 since March 2011. Ms. Coleman is a meticulous and trustworthy individual and has been kept on for her services for so long due to her reliability and punctuality.
Ms. Coleman is presently earning $9.38 per hour which amounts to an annual salary of $19,510. A sum of $281.4 is directly credited to her account # VG62736352-11 at Texas Bank on weekly basis. Please refer to the copies of her bank statements and credit receipts for the previous 12 months enclosed with this letter.
I believe that Ms. Coleman is perfectly qualified to obtain a car loan from your bank as she is expected to remain in my employment for at least the next five years and will be able to pay back the loan amount easily.
I, Gregory Mans, state that the information provided in this proof of income document is correct.
