I'm trying to figure out if it's worth it to claim my child care expenses. Does anyone know about how much it means in extra refund money or extra headaches in filling out additional forms? Also what kind of documentation would I need to provide?
Also my child care provider isn't currently paying taxes on the money I pay her. I consider her an independent contractor & I do not pay any taxes on her behalf. What does she need to do in order to not get in trouble w/ the IRS if I were to claim the deduction?
