Hello there fellow Michigander.

Here is what the second link that bc posted. It is from Tom's blog.

Can Parents Claim the Child Care Tax Credit if I’m Not Licensed?
NOVEMBER 13, 2016

Yes, under two circumstances.

First, if you are caring for six children or fewer (not counting your own children) parents can claim the credit. In this situation it doesn’t matter if you are in violation of your state’s child care licensing rules.

Second, if you are caring for more than six children, parents can claim the credit as long as you are not in violation of your state’s child care licensing rules.

See the Instructions to IRS Form 2441 Child and Dependent Care Expenses.

----- So basically she can claim you only if you watch less than six children because you are in volation of state licensing rules.
