We moved last month, across the country, so it's not like I can just go knocking.<br><br>
I have left several messages and the owner will not call me back.<br><br>
I cannot file my taxes until I have this information since it pertains to the child care tax credit (and I paid this particular daycare more than half of my daycare money last year - if it wasn't such a big amount, I'd just say whatever and file without it, but it affects my taxes by some serious money.)<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/help.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="help">:

I don't have an answer but my vote is to call the IRS and find out what their policy is? I'm *sure* they have a policy about this, it has to be a fairly common problem?

Are you still friends or in contact with any of the other parents who use the daycare? They may know or may be able to find out for you.

Actually, I just called the IRS and they said I can attach a statement saying I was unable to contact the provider to get the information needed.<br><br>
It means I cannot file online, but oh well.

Too bad about having to mail it in, but I found last year, it only held up our refund by about a week.<br><br>
I'm sure the IRS will be happy to get the name, address, and phone number of the day care operator. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I also send a certified letter to the daycare provider asking for the information that you are LEGALLY intitaled to. We went thru something similar.. it took 7 calls on my part for a childcare center located 3miles away. I was very fustrated by this. It was a center I had planned on using in the future when I return to work. Based on this experence We will be looking else where.
