I would imagine this has been covered before, but had no luck in my search... so,
I worked all spring, and kept track of the payments I made to our childcare provider, who worked in our home, caring for only our child. She would like to claim the money as income and be above-board on her taxes, and I would like to claim the payments as childcare expenses for us. What do we need to do to make sure we have things documented correctly? Is there a particular form we need to do? She called the IRS the other day and said she talked to 4 different people over 30 minutes, and none of them had an answer for her.
Has anyone done this?
Mama to my sweet pea:, can't believe how fast she's growing!
