The after school program doesn't have an EIN to give parents. But we do pay for it. It's partly grant funded, and parents pay $100 per month.


How do I claim that dependant care expense?
Fill out IRS Form 2441. The school program doesn't have an EIN, so you leave it blank on this form.

The maximum child care expense you can use towards determining how much credit you will get is $6,000 for two or more children.

LostMyMarbles Lol same. I just keep track of what is paid and turn it in. I have no idea what the parents do with the yearly statements I give them. One mom told me they don't use their childcare total on their taxes. I just work here!!!

hey, me either.... I just happen to read it like 10 minutes prior to you posting and thought, "hey! here is the answer she's looking for!" I think.

Bottom line is I think the amount they can claim is really dependent on their income. But who knows... I do NOT understand anything tax related other than pay what I am told to pay by my CPA.

Glad I am not the only one...

"How Much Is the Child and Dependent Care Credit?

The Child and Dependent Care Credit can be worth from 20% to 35% of some or all of the dependent care expenses you paid. The percentage you use depends on your income.

If your income is below $15,000, you will qualify for the full 35%. The percentage falls by 1% for every additional $2,000 of income until it reaches 20% (for an income of $43,000 or more).

The 20%-35% is taken from up to $3,000 of expenses paid for one Qualifying Person, or from up to $6,000 of expenses paid for two or more Qualifying Persons.

Therefore, the maximum Child and Dependent Care Credit is worth $2,100 (based on 2 or more dependents and $6,000 or more of qualifying expenses).

Before figuring the credit, you must reduce your qualifying expenses by any amount of child or dependent care benefits that were provided by your employer and that you deducted or excluded from your income.

The Child and Dependent Care Credit is not refundable, so it is not worth anything if you owe no income tax."
