Today we're going to take a look at filling out the form 24:41 this is the form for child and dependent care expenses also known as the daycare credit of course as with all forms we need to type in the name and we're going to use John and Jane Doe and of course John Doe social security number will go in the upper right hand corner which you will of course as usual double triple and quadruple check before you move on to be able to get the childcare credit you need the care providers name address and their identifying number if they have a federal ID number you would use that if it's an individual you would need their social security number this means that if you take this credit the IRS is going to expect to see this that that amount of income was reported on that person's or that organization's tax return so if this is your mother and she doesn't want to report this you cannot take the credit all right so we're going to pretend that John and Jane Doe used ABC child care and and you would put the address and the social security number or federal ID number of their organization then is the total that you pay that an organization so if John and Jane have two children that they paid for and they paid a total of $4,000 for the year to ABC child care this is how much total that they paid note under here is a section on receiving dependent care benefits what this is talking about is that if your employer helped to pay for these benefits to ABC child care sometimes an employer has benefits for their employees where they help to pay for childcare if you receive this it will be on your w-2 and you would then have to complete part three on the back of this form that is beyond the scope of this class so we will not need to be doing that part to credit for the children and this is where you're putting in the information about each child that went to ABC so if John jr. John Jr and we'll assume the last name and you would put that in and you would put in John Jr social security number double triple quadruple checking then is how much expenses you incurred and paid for Oh John jr. so let's say the four thousand that they pay was included for John and for Jane Jane junior Hey mm was for John junior and 2000 was for Jane junior so John junior were gonna put the mm here now Jane was over was 13 or over years old this credit as we have discussed in the PowerPoint is only for children under the age of 13 so Jane young Jane is over that age limit so we cannot take the credit the 2,000 that we paid for her we cannot take that only the 2,000 we paid for John Jr line three add the amount and column see of line two that's this 2,000 it says do not enter more than 3000 for one qualifying person or 6000 for two or more so we have one qualifying child and that is we can have anywhere up to $3,000 and we only have 2,000 so we'll put our 2,000 they're lying for enter your earned income your meaning whoever is listed first at the top of the return John senior is listed first...
