Quick Tax question (Posted on 3/19/13 at 6:24 pm)
I am doing my taxes online on H&R Block. This is the first time I have to enter the amount we have paid into daycare for my child. I know it goes in deductions, but what does that usually fall under? all i see related is K-12 classroom expenses. I dont see anythign for tuition. Maybe Misc?

Daycare expenses are actually a credit rather than a deduction assuming that your child is 12 or younger. I'm not familiar with H&R Block's software, but make sure it is counted as a credit on form 2441 not a deduction.
