Babysitter Doesnt Claim Taxes & Dependent Care Account
I'm just wising up to alot of opportunities I might be missing out on.
We pay $240/wk for two kids in a ladies in-home child care, I pull this money straight out of my checking account.
I was under the impression that since she doesnt file taxes showing the income, we can't claim it as a deduction. Is this true?
Also, since she doesnt claim it on taxes we cant file it to do a DCA either?
Can somebody please help me clarify what I can, and can't do. I believe $240/wk to be on the low end for childcare if that matters.
