Irs tax extention form The care must be for one or more qualifying persons who are identified on Form 2441. Irs tax extention form (See Qualifying Person Test. Irs tax extention form ) You (and your spouse if filing jointly) must have earned income during the year. Irs tax extention form (However, see Rule for student-spouse or spouse not able to care for self under Earned Income Test, later. Irs tax extention form ) You must pay child and dependent care expenses so you (and your spouse if filing jointly) can work or look for work. Irs tax extention form (See Work-Related Expense Test, later. Irs tax extention form ) You must make payments for child and dependent care to someone you (and your spouse) cannot claim as a dependent. Irs tax extention form If you make payments to your child, he or she cannot be your dependent and must be age 19 or older by the end of the year. Irs tax extention form You cannot make payments to: Your spouse, or The parent of your qualifying person if your qualifying person is your child and under age 13. Irs tax extention form See Payments to Relatives or Dependents under Work-Related Expense Test, later. Irs tax extention form Your filing status may be single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) with dependent child. Irs tax extention form If you are married, you must file a joint return, unless an exception applies to you. Irs tax extention form See Joint Return Test, later. Irs tax extention form You must identify the care provider on your tax return. Irs tax extention form (See Provider Identification Test, later. Irs tax extention form ) If you exclude or deduct dependent care benefits provided by a dependent care benefit plan, the total amount you exclude or deduct must be less than the dollar limit for qualifying expenses (generally, $3,000 if one qualifying person was cared for or $6,000 if two or more qualifying persons were cared for). Irs tax extention form (If two or more qualifying persons were cared for, the amount you exclude or deduct will always be less than the dollar limit, since the total amount you can exclude or deduct is limited to $5,000. Irs tax extention form See Reduced Dollar Limit under How To Figure the Credit, later. Irs tax extention form ) These tests are presented in Figure A and are also explained in detail in this publication. Irs tax extention form Qualifying Person Test Your child and dependent care expenses must be for the care of one or more qualifying persons. Irs tax extention form A qualifying person is: Your qualifying child who is your dependent and who was under age 13 when the care was provided (but see Child of divorced or separated parents or parents living apart , later), Your spouse who was not physically or mentally able to care for himself or herself and lived with you for more than half the year, or A person who was not physically or mentally able to care for himself or herself, lived with you for more than half the year, and either: Was your dependent, or Would have been your dependent except that: He or she received gross income of $3,900 or more, He or she filed a joint return, or You, or your spouse if filing jointly, could be claimed as a dependent on someone else's 2013 return. Irs tax extention form Dependent defined. Irs tax extention form   A dependent is a person, other than you or your spouse, for whom you can claim an exemption. Irs tax extention form To be your dependent, a person must be your qualifying child (or your qualifying relative). Irs tax extention form Qualifying child. Irs tax extention form   To be your qualifying child, a child must live with you for more than half the year and meet other requirements. Irs tax extention form More information. Irs tax extention form   For more information about who is a dependent or a qualifying child, see Publication 501. Irs tax extention form Physically or mentally not able to care for oneself. Irs tax extention form   Persons who cannot dress, clean, or feed themselves because of physical or mental problems are considered not able to care for themselves. Irs tax extention form Also, persons who must have constant attention to prevent them from injuring themselves or others are considered not able to care for themselves. Irs tax extention form Person qualifying for part of year. Irs tax extention form   You determine a person's qualifying status each day. Irs tax extention form For example, if the person for whom you pay child and dependent care expenses no longer qualifies on September 16, count only those expenses through September 15. Irs tax extention form Also see Yearly limit under Dollar Limit, later. Irs tax extention form Birth or death of otherwise qualifying person. Irs tax extention form   In determining whether a person is a qualifying person, a person who was born or died in 2013 is treated as having lived with you for more than half of 2013 if your home was the person's home more than half the time he or she was alive in 2013. Irs tax extention form Taxpayer identification number. Irs tax extention form   You must include on your return the name and taxpayer identification number (generally the social security number) of the qualifying person(s). Irs tax extention form If the correct information is not shown, the credit may be reduced or disallowed. Irs tax extention form Individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) for aliens. Irs tax extention form   If your qualifying person is a nonresident or resident alien who does not have and cannot get a social security number (SSN), use that person's ITIN. Irs tax extention form The ITIN is entered wherever an SSN is requested on a tax return. Irs tax extention form If the alien does not have an ITIN, he or she must apply for one. Irs tax extention form See Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, for details. Irs tax extention form   An ITIN is for tax use only. Irs tax extention form It does not entitle the holder to social security benefits or change the holder's employment or immigration status under U. Irs tax extention form S. Irs tax extention form law. Irs tax extention form Adoption taxpayer identification number (ATIN). Irs tax extention form   If your qualifying person is a child who was placed in your home for adoption and for whom you do not have an SSN, you must get an ATIN for the child. Irs tax extention form File Form W-7A, Application for Taxpayer Identification Number for Pending U. Irs tax extention form S. Irs tax extention form Adoptions. Irs tax extention form Child of divorced or separated parents or parents living apart. Irs tax extention form   Even if you cannot claim your child as a dependent, he or she is treated as your qualifying person if: The child was under age 13 or was not physically or mentally able to care for himself or herself, The child received over half of his or her support during the calendar year from one or both parents who are divorced or legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, are separated under a written separation agreement, or lived apart at all times during the last 6 months of the calendar year, The child was in the custody of one or both parents for more than half the year, and You were the child's custodial parent. Irs tax extention form   The custodial parent is the parent with whom the child lived for the greater number of nights in 2013. Irs tax extention form If the child was with each parent for an equal number of nights, the custodial parent is the parent with the higher adjusted gross income. Irs tax extention form For details and an exception for a parent who works at night, see Publication 501. Irs tax extention form   The noncustodial parent cannot treat the child as a qualifying person even if that parent is entitled to claim the child as a dependent under the special rules for a child of divorced or separated parents.

Irs tax extention form Can you claim the credit Earned Income Test To claim the credit, you (and your spouse if filing jointly) must have earned income during the year. Irs tax extention form Earned income. Irs tax extention form   Earned income includes wages, salaries, tips, other taxable employee compensation, and net earnings from self-employment. Irs tax extention form A net loss from self-employment reduces earned income. Irs tax extention form Earned income also includes strike benefits and any disability pay you report as wages. Irs tax extention form   Generally, only taxable compensation is included. Irs tax extention form However, you can elect to include nontaxable combat pay in earned income. Irs tax extention form If you are filing a joint return and both you and your spouse received nontaxable combat pay, you can each make your own election. Irs tax extention form (In other words, if one of you makes the election, the other one can also make it but does not have to. Irs tax extention form ) Including this income will give you a larger credit only if your (or your spouse's) other earned income is less than the amount entered on line 3 of Form 2441. Irs tax extention form You should figure your credit both ways and make the election if it gives you a greater tax benefit. Irs tax extention form    You can choose to include your nontaxable combat pay in earned income when figuring your credit for child and dependent care expenses, even if you choose not to include it in earned income for the earned income credit or the exclusion or deduction for dependent care benefits. Irs tax extention form Members of certain religious faiths opposed to social security. Irs tax extention form   This section is for persons who are members of certain religious faiths that are opposed to participation in Social Security Act programs and have an IRS-approved form that exempts certain income from social security and Medicare taxes. Irs tax extention form These forms are: Form 4361, Application for Exemption From Self-Employment Tax for Use by Ministers, Members of Religious Orders and Christian Science Practitioners, and Form 4029, Application for Exemption From Social Security and Medicare Taxes and Waiver of Benefits, for use by members of recognized religious groups. Irs tax extention form   Each form is discussed here in terms of what is or is not earned income for purposes of the child and dependent care credit. Irs tax extention form For information on the use of these forms, see Publication 517, Social Security and Other Information for Members of the Clergy and Religious Workers. Irs tax extention form Form 4361. Irs tax extention form   Whether or not you have an approved Form 4361, amounts you received for performing ministerial duties as an employee are earned income. Irs tax extention form This includes wages, salaries, tips, and other taxable employee compensation. Irs tax extention form   However, amounts you received for ministerial duties, but not as an employee, do not count as earned income. Irs tax extention form Examples include fees for performing marriages and honoraria for delivering speeches. Irs tax extention form   Any amount you received for work that is not related to your ministerial duties is earned income. Irs tax extention form Form 4029. Irs tax extention form   Whether or not you have an approved Form 4029, all wages, salaries, tips, and other taxable employee compensation are earned income. Irs tax extention form   However, amounts you received as a self-employed individual do not count as earned income. Irs tax extention form What is not earned income?   Earned income does not include: Pensions and annuities, Social security and railroad retirement benefits, Workers' compensation, Interest and dividends, Unemployment compensation, Scholarships or fellowship grants, except for those reported on Form W-2 and paid to you for teaching or other services, Nontaxable workfare payments, Child support payments received, Income of a nonresident alien that is not effectively connected with a U. Irs tax extention form S. Irs tax extention form trade or business, or Any amount received for work while an inmate in a penal institution. Irs tax extention form Rule for student-spouse or spouse not able to care for self. Irs tax extention form   Your spouse is treated as having earned income for any month that he or she is: A full-time student, or Physically or mentally not able to care for himself or herself. Irs tax extention form (Your spouse also must live with you for more than half the year. Irs tax extention form )   If you are filing a joint return, this rule also applies to you. Irs tax extention form You can be treated as having earned income for any month you are a full-time student or not able to care for yourself. Irs tax extention form   Figure the earned income of the nonworking spouse, described under (1) or (2) above, as shown under Earned Income Limit under How To Figure the Credit, later. Irs tax extention form   This rule applies to only one spouse for any one month. Irs tax extention form If, in the same month, both you and your spouse do not work and are either full-time students or not physically or mentally able to care for yourselves, only one of you can be treated as having earned income in that month. Irs tax extention form Full-time student. Irs tax extention form    You are a full-time student if you are enrolled at a school for the number of hours or classes that the school considers full time. Irs tax extention form You must have been a full-time student for some part of each of 5 calendar months during the year. Irs tax extention form (The months need not be consecutive. Irs tax extention form ) School. Irs tax extention form   The term “school” includes high schools, colleges, universities, and technical, trade, and mechanical schools. Irs tax extention form A school does not include an on-the-job training course, correspondence school, or school offering courses only through the Internet. Irs tax extention form Work-Related Expense Test Child and dependent care expenses must be work-related to qualify for the credit. Irs tax extention form Expenses are considered work-related only if both of the following are true. Irs tax extention form They allow you (and your spouse if filing jointly) to work or look for work. Irs tax extention form They are for a qualifying person's care. Irs tax extention form Working or Looking for Work To be work-related, your expenses must allow you to work or look for work. Irs tax extention form If you are married, generally both you and your spouse must work or look for work. Irs tax extention form One spouse is treated as working during any month he or she is a full-time student or is not physically or mentally able to care for himself or herself. Irs tax extention form Your work can be for others or in your own business or partnership. Irs tax extention form It can be either full time or part time. Irs tax extention form Work also includes actively looking for work. Irs tax extention form However, if you do not find a job and have no earned income for the year, you cannot take this credit. Irs tax extention form See Earned Income Test, earlier. Irs tax extention form An expense is not considered work-related merely because you had it while you were working. Irs tax extention form The purpose of the expense must be to allow you to work. Irs tax extention form Whether your expenses allow you to work or look for work depends on the facts. Irs tax extention form Example 1. Irs tax extention form The cost of a babysitter while you and your spouse go out to eat is not normally a work-related expense. Irs tax extention form Example 2. Irs tax extention form You work during the day. Irs tax extention form Your spouse works at night and sleeps during the day. Irs tax extention form You pay for care of your 5-year-old child during the hours when you are working and your spouse is sleeping. Irs tax extention form Your expenses are considered work-related. Irs tax extention form Volunteer work. Irs tax extention form   For this purpose, you are not considered to be working if you do unpaid volunteer work or volunteer work for a nominal salary. Irs tax extention form Work for part of year. Irs tax extention form   If you work or actively look for work during only part of the period covered by the expenses, then you must figure your expenses for each day. Irs tax extention form For example, if you work all year and pay care expenses of $250 a month ($3,000 for the year), all the expenses are work related. Irs tax extention form However, if you work or look for work for only 2 months and 15 days during the year and pay expenses of $250 a month, your work-related expenses are limited to $625 (2½ months × $250). Irs tax extention form Temporary absence from work. Irs tax extention form   You do not have to figure your expenses for each day during a short, temporary absence from work, such as for vacation or a minor illness, if you have to pay for care anyway. Irs tax extention form Instead, you can figure your credit including the expenses you paid for the period of absence. Irs tax extention form   An absence of 2 weeks or less is a short, temporary absence. Irs tax extention form An absence of more than 2 weeks may be considered a short, temporary absence, depending on the circumstances. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form You pay a nanny to care for your 2-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter so you can work. Irs tax extention form You become ill and miss 4 months of work but receive sick pay. Irs tax extention form You continue to pay the nanny to care for the children while you are ill. Irs tax extention form Your absence is not a short, temporary absence, and your expenses are not considered work-related. Irs tax extention form Part-time work. Irs tax extention form   If you work part-time, you generally must figure your expenses for each day. Irs tax extention form However, if you have to pay for care weekly, monthly, or in another way that includes both days worked and days not worked, you can figure your credit including the expenses you paid for days you did not work. Irs tax extention form Any day when you work at least 1 hour is a day of work. Irs tax extention form Example 1. Irs tax extention form You work 3 days a week. Irs tax extention form While you work, your 6-year-old child attends a dependent care center, which complies with all state and local regulations. Irs tax extention form You can pay the center $150 for any 3 days a week or $250 for 5 days a week. Irs tax extention form Your child attends the center 5 days a week. Irs tax extention form Your work-related expenses are limited to $150 a week. Irs tax extention form Example 2. Irs tax extention form The facts are the same as in Example 1 except the center does not offer a 3-day option. Irs tax extention form The entire $250 weekly fee may be a work-related expense. Irs tax extention form Care of a Qualifying Person To be work-related, your expenses must be to provide care for a qualifying person. Irs tax extention form You do not have to choose the least expensive way of providing the care. Irs tax extention form The cost of a paid care provider may be an expense for the care of a qualifying person even if another care provider is available at no cost. Irs tax extention form Expenses are for the care of a qualifying person only if their main purpose is the person's well-being and protection. Irs tax extention form Expenses for household services qualify if part of the services is for the care of qualifying persons. Irs tax extention form See Household Services, later. Irs tax extention form Expenses not for care. Irs tax extention form   Expenses for care do not include amounts you pay for food, lodging, clothing, education, and entertainment. Irs tax extention form However, you can include small amounts paid for these items if they are incidental to and cannot be separated from the cost of caring for the qualifying person. Irs tax extention form Otherwise, see the discussion of Expenses partly work-related, later. Irs tax extention form   Child support payments are not for care and do not qualify for the credit. Irs tax extention form Education. Irs tax extention form   Expenses for a child in nursery school, preschool, or similar programs for children below the level of kindergarten are expenses for care. Irs tax extention form   Expenses to attend kindergarten or a higher grade are not expenses for care. Irs tax extention form Do not use these expenses to figure your credit. Irs tax extention form   However, expenses for before- or after-school care of a child in kindergarten or a higher grade may be expenses for care. Irs tax extention form   Summer school and tutoring programs are not for care. Irs tax extention form Example 1. Irs tax extention form You take your 3-year-old child to a nursery school that provides lunch and a few educational activities as part of its preschool childcare service. Irs tax extention form The lunch and educational activities are incidental to the childcare, and their cost cannot be separated from the cost of care. Irs tax extention form You can count the total cost when you figure the credit. Irs tax extention form Example 2. Irs tax extention form You place your 10-year-old child in a boarding school so you can work full time. Irs tax extention form Only the part of the boarding school expense that is for the care of your child is a work-related expense. Irs tax extention form You can count that part of the expense in figuring your credit if it can be separated from the cost of education. Irs tax extention form You cannot count any part of the amount you pay the school for your child's education. Irs tax extention form Care outside your home. Irs tax extention form   You can count the cost of care provided outside your home if the care is for your dependent under age 13 or any other qualifying person who regularly spends at least 8 hours each day in your home. Irs tax extention form Dependent care center. Irs tax extention form   You can count care provided outside your home by a dependent care center only if the center complies with all state and local regulations that apply to these centers. Irs tax extention form   A dependent care center is a place that provides care for more than six persons (other than persons who live there) and receives a fee, payment, or grant for providing services for any of those persons, even if the center is not run for profit. Irs tax extention form Camp. Irs tax extention form   The cost of sending your child to an overnight camp is not considered a work-related expense. Irs tax extention form    The cost of sending your child to a day camp may be a work-related expense, even if the camp specializes in a particular activity, such as computers or soccer. Irs tax extention form Transportation. Irs tax extention form   If a care provider takes a qualifying person to or from a place where care is provided, that transportation is for the care of the qualifying person. Irs tax extention form This includes transportation by bus, subway, taxi, or private car. Irs tax extention form However, transportation not provided by a care provider is not for the care of a qualifying person. Irs tax extention form Also, if you pay the transportation cost for the care provider to come to your home, that expense is not for care of a qualifying person. Irs tax extention form Fees and deposits. Irs tax extention form   Fees you paid to an agency to get the services of a care provider, deposits you paid to an agency or preschool, application fees, and other indirect expenses are work-related expenses if you have to pay them to get care, even though they are not directly for care. Irs tax extention form However, a forfeited deposit is not for the care of a qualifying person if care is not provided. Irs tax extention form Example 1. Irs tax extention form You paid a fee to an agency to get the services of the nanny who cares for your 2-year-old daughter while you work. Irs tax extention form The fee you paid is a work-related expense. Irs tax extention form Example 2. Irs tax extention form You placed a deposit with a preschool to reserve a place for your 3-year-old child. Irs tax extention form You later sent your child to a different preschool and forfeited the deposit. Irs tax extention form The forfeited deposit is not for care and so is not a work-related expense. Irs tax extention form Household Services Expenses you pay for household services meet the work-related expense test if they are at least partly for the well-being and protection of a qualifying person. Irs tax extention form Definition. Irs tax extention form   Household services are ordinary and usual services done in and around your home that are necessary to run your home. Irs tax extention form They include the services of a housekeeper, maid, or cook. Irs tax extention form However, they do not include the services of a chauffeur, bartender, or gardener. Irs tax extention form Housekeeper. Irs tax extention form   In this publication, the term housekeeper refers to any household employee whose services include the care of a qualifying person. Irs tax extention form Expenses partly work-related. Irs tax extention form   If part of an expense is work-related (for either household services or the care of a qualifying person) and part is for other purposes, you have to divide the expense. Irs tax extention form To figure your credit, count only the part that is work-related. Irs tax extention form However, you do not have to divide the expense if only a small part is for other purposes. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form You pay a housekeeper to care for your 9-year-old and 15-year-old children so you can work. Irs tax extention form The housekeeper spends most of the time doing normal household work and spends 30 minutes a day driving you to and from work. Irs tax extention form You do not have to divide the expenses. Irs tax extention form You can treat the entire expense of the housekeeper as work-related because the time spent driving is minimal. Irs tax extention form Nor do you have to divide the expenses between the two children, even though the expenses are partly for the 15-year-old child who is not a qualifying person, because the expense is also partly for the care of your 9-year-old child, who is a qualifying person. Irs tax extention form However, the dollar limit (discussed later) is based on one qualifying person, not two. Irs tax extention form Meals and lodging provided for housekeeper. Irs tax extention form   If you have expenses for meals that your housekeeper eats in your home because of his or her employment, count these as work-related expenses. Irs tax extention form If you have extra expenses for providing lodging in your home to the housekeeper, count these as work-related expenses also. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form To provide lodging to the housekeeper, you move to an apartment with an extra bedroom. Irs tax extention form You can count the extra rent and utility expenses for the housekeeper's bedroom as work-related. Irs tax extention form However, if your housekeeper moves into an existing bedroom in your home, you can count only the extra utility expenses as work-related. Irs tax extention form Taxes paid on wages. Irs tax extention form   The taxes you pay on wages for qualifying child and dependent care services are work-related expenses. Irs tax extention form For more information on a household employer's tax responsibilities, see Employment Taxes for Household Employers, later. Irs tax extention form Payments to Relatives or Dependents You can count work-related payments you make to relatives who are not your dependents, even if they live in your home. Irs tax extention form However, do not count any amounts you pay to: A dependent for whom you (or your spouse if filing jointly) can claim an exemption, Your child who was under age 19 at the end of the year, even if he or she is not your dependent, A person who was your spouse any time during the year, or The parent of your qualifying person if your qualifying person is your child and under age 13. Irs tax extention form Joint Return Test Generally, married couples must file a joint return to take the credit. Irs tax extention form However, if you are legally separated or living apart from your spouse, you may be able to file a separate return and still take the credit. Irs tax extention form Legally separated. Irs tax extention form   You are not considered married if you are legally separated from your spouse under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance. Irs tax extention form You may be eligible to take the credit on your return using head of household filing status. Irs tax extention form Married and living apart. Irs tax extention form   You are not considered married and are eligible to take the credit if all the following apply. Irs tax extention form You file a return apart from your spouse. Irs tax extention form Your home is the home of a qualifying person for more than half the year. Irs tax extention form You pay more than half the cost of keeping up your home for the year. Irs tax extention form Your spouse does not live in your home for the last 6 months of the year. Irs tax extention form Costs of keeping up a home. Irs tax extention form   The costs of keeping up a home normally include property taxes, mortgage interest, rent, utility charges, home repairs, insurance on the home, and food eaten at home. Irs tax extention form   The costs of keeping up a home do not include payments for clothing, education, medical treatment, vacations, life insurance, transportation, or mortgage principal. Irs tax extention form   They also do not include the purchase, permanent improvement, or replacement of property. Irs tax extention form For example, you cannot include the cost of replacing a water heater. Irs tax extention form However, you can include the cost of repairing a water heater. Irs tax extention form Death of spouse. Irs tax extention form   If your spouse died during the year and you do not remarry before the end of the year, you generally must file a joint return to take the credit. Irs tax extention form If you do remarry before the end of the year, the credit can be claimed on your deceased spouse's own return. Irs tax extention form Provider Identification Test You must identify all persons or organizations that provide care for your child or dependent. Irs tax extention form Use Form 2441, Part I, to show the information. Irs tax extention form If you do not have any care providers and you are filing Form 2441 only to report taxable income in Part III, enter “none” in line 1, column (a). Irs tax extention form Information needed. Irs tax extention form   To identify the care provider, you must give the provider's: Name, Address, and Taxpayer identification number. Irs tax extention form    If the care provider is an individual, the taxpayer identification number is his or her social security number or individual taxpayer identification number. Irs tax extention form If the care provider is an organization, then it is the employer identification number (EIN). Irs tax extention form   You do not have to show the taxpayer identification number if the care provider is a tax-exempt organization (such as a church or school). Irs tax extention form In this case, enter “Tax-Exempt” in the space where Form 2441 asks for the number. Irs tax extention form   If you cannot provide all of the information or the information is incorrect, you must be able to show that you used due diligence (discussed later) in trying to furnish the necessary information. Irs tax extention form Getting the information. Irs tax extention form    You can use Form W-10, Dependent Care Provider's Identification and Certification, to request the required information from the care provider. Irs tax extention form If you do not use Form W-10, you can get the information from one of the other sources listed in the instructions for Form W-10, including: A copy of the provider's social security card, A copy of the provider's completed Form W-4, Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate, if he or she is your household employee, A copy of the statement furnished by your employer if the provider is your employer's dependent care plan, or A letter or invoice from the provider if it shows the necessary information. Irs tax extention form    You should keep this information with your tax records. Irs tax extention form Do not send Form W-10 (or other document containing this information) to the Internal Revenue Service. Irs tax extention form Due diligence. Irs tax extention form   If the care provider information you give is incorrect or incomplete, your credit may not be allowed. Irs tax extention form However, if you can show that you used due diligence in trying to supply the information, you can still claim the credit. Irs tax extention form   You can show due diligence by getting and keeping the provider's completed Form W-10 or one of the other sources of information just listed. Irs tax extention form Care providers can be penalized if they do not provide this information to you or if they provide incorrect information. Irs tax extention form Provider refusal. Irs tax extention form    If the provider refuses to give you the identifying information, you should report on Form 2441 whatever information you have (such as the name and address). Irs tax extention form Enter “See Attached Statement” in the columns calling for the information you do not have. Irs tax extention form Then attach a statement explaining that you requested the information from the care provider, but the provider did not give you the information. Irs tax extention form Be sure to write your name and social security number on this statement. Irs tax extention form The statement will show that you used due diligence in trying to furnish the necessary information. Irs tax extention form U. Irs tax extention form S. Irs tax extention form citizens and resident aliens living abroad. Irs tax extention form   If you are living abroad, your care provider may not have, and may not be required to get, a U. Irs tax extention form S. Irs tax extention form taxpayer identification number (for example, an SSN or an EIN). Irs tax extention form If so, enter “LAFCP” (Living Abroad Foreign Care Provider) in the space for the care provider's taxpayer identification number. Irs tax extention form How To Figure the Credit Your credit is a percentage of your work-related expenses. Irs tax extention form Your expenses are subject to the earned income limit and the dollar limit. Irs tax extention form The percentage is based on your adjusted gross income. Irs tax extention form Figuring Total Work-Related Expenses To figure the credit for 2013 work-related expenses, count only those you paid by December 31, 2013. Irs tax extention form Expenses prepaid in an earlier year. Irs tax extention form   If you pay for services before they are provided, you can count the prepaid expenses only in the year the care is received. Irs tax extention form Claim the expenses for the later year as if they were actually paid in that later year. Irs tax extention form Expenses not paid until the following year. Irs tax extention form   Do not count 2012 expenses that you paid in 2013 as work-related expenses for 2013. Irs tax extention form You may be able to claim an additional credit for them on your 2013 return, but you must figure it separately. Irs tax extention form See Payments for prior year's expenses under Amount of Credit, later. Irs tax extention form If you had expenses in 2013 that you did not pay until 2014, you cannot count them when figuring your 2013 credit. Irs tax extention form You may be able to claim a credit for them on your 2014 return. Irs tax extention form Expenses reimbursed. Irs tax extention form   If a state social services agency pays you a nontaxable amount to reimburse you for some of your child and dependent care expenses, you cannot count the expenses that are reimbursed as work-related expenses. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form You paid work-related expenses of $3,000. Irs tax extention form You are reimbursed $2,000 by a state social services agency. Irs tax extention form You can use only $1,000 to figure your credit. Irs tax extention form Medical expenses. Irs tax extention form   Some expenses for the care of qualifying persons who are not able to care for themselves may qualify as work-related expenses and also as medical expenses. Irs tax extention form You can use them either way, but you cannot use the same expenses to claim both a credit and a medical expense deduction. Irs tax extention form   If you use these expenses to figure the credit and they are more than the earned income limit or the dollar limit, discussed later, you can add the excess to your medical expenses. Irs tax extention form However, if you use your total expenses to figure your medical expense deduction, you cannot use any part of them to figure your credit. Irs tax extention form For information on medical expenses, see Publication 502, Medical and Dental Expenses. Irs tax extention form    Amounts excluded from your income under your employer's dependent care benefits plan cannot be used to claim a medical expense deduction. Irs tax extention form Dependent Care Benefits If you receive dependent care benefits, your dollar limit for purposes of the credit may be reduced. Irs tax extention form See Reduced Dollar Limit, later. Irs tax extention form But, even if you cannot take the credit, you may be able to take an exclusion or deduction for the dependent care benefits. Irs tax extention form Dependent care benefits. Irs tax extention form    Dependent care benefits include: Amounts your employer paid directly to either you or your care provider for the care of your qualifying person while you work, The fair market value of care in a daycare facility provided or sponsored by your employer, and Pre-tax contributions you made under a dependent care flexible spending arrangement. Irs tax extention form Your salary may have been reduced to pay for these benefits. Irs tax extention form If you received benefits as an employee, they should be shown in box 10 of your Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Irs tax extention form See Statement for employee, later. Irs tax extention form Benefits you received as a partner should be shown in box 13 of your Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) with code O. Irs tax extention form   Enter the amount of these benefits on Form 2441, Part III, line 12. Irs tax extention form Exclusion or deduction. Irs tax extention form   If your employer provides dependent care benefits under a qualified plan, you may be able to exclude these benefits from your income. Irs tax extention form Your employer can tell you whether your benefit plan qualifies. Irs tax extention form To claim the exclusion, you must complete Part III of Form 2441. Irs tax extention form You cannot use Form 1040EZ. Irs tax extention form   If you are self-employed and receive benefits from a qualified dependent care benefit plan, you are treated as both employer and employee. Irs tax extention form Therefore, you would not get an exclusion from wages. Irs tax extention form Instead, you would get a deduction on Form 1040, Schedule C, line 14; Schedule E, line 19 or 28; or Schedule F, line 15. Irs tax extention form To claim the deduction, you must use Form 2441. Irs tax extention form   The amount you can exclude or deduct is limited to the smallest of: The total amount of dependent care benefits you received during the year, The total amount of qualified expenses you incurred during the year, Your earned income, Your spouse's earned income, or $5,000 ($2,500 if married filing separately). Irs tax extention form   The definition of earned income for the exclusion or deduction is the same as the definition used when figuring the credit except that earned income for the exclusion or deduction does not include any dependent care benefits you receive. Irs tax extention form    You can choose to include your nontaxable combat pay in earned income when figuring your exclusion or deduction, even if you choose not to include it in earned income for the earned income credit or the credit for child and dependent care expenses. Irs tax extention form Statement for employee. Irs tax extention form   Your employer must give you a Form W-2 (or similar statement), showing in box 10 the total amount of dependent care benefits provided to you during the year under a qualified plan. Irs tax extention form Your employer will also include any dependent care benefits over $5,000 in your wages shown on your Form W-2 in box 1. Irs tax extention form Effect of exclusion on credit. Irs tax extention form   If you exclude dependent care benefits from your income, the amount of the excluded benefits: Is not included in your work-related expenses, and Reduces the dollar limit, discussed later. Irs tax extention form Earned Income Limit The amount of work-related expenses you use to figure your credit cannot be more than: Your earned income for the year, if you are single at the end of the year, or The smaller of your or your spouse's earned income for the year if you are married at the end of the year. Irs tax extention form Earned income for the purpose of figuring the credit is defined under Earned Income Test, earlier. Irs tax extention form For purposes of item (2), use your spouse's earned income for the entire year, even if you were married for only part of the year. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form You remarried on December 3. Irs tax extention form Your earned income for the year was $18,000. Irs tax extention form Your new spouse's earned income for the year was $2,000. Irs tax extention form You paid work-related expenses of $3,000 for the care of your 5-year-old child and qualified to claim the credit. Irs tax extention form The amount of expenses you use to figure your credit cannot be more than $2,000 (the smaller of your earned income or that of your spouse). Irs tax extention form Separated spouse. Irs tax extention form   If you are legally separated or married and living apart from your spouse (as described under Joint Return Test, earlier), you are not considered married for purposes of the earned income limit. Irs tax extention form Use only your income in figuring the earned income limit. Irs tax extention form Surviving spouse. Irs tax extention form   If your spouse died during the year and you file a joint return as a surviving spouse, you may, but are not required to, take into account the earned income of your spouse who died during the year. Irs tax extention form Community property laws. Irs tax extention form   Disregard community property laws when you figure earned income for this credit. Irs tax extention form Self-employment earnings. Irs tax extention form   If you are self-employed, include your net earnings in earned income. Irs tax extention form For purposes of the child and dependent care credit, net earnings from self-employment generally means the amount from Schedule SE (either Section A or Section B), line 3, minus any deduction for self-employment tax on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 27. Irs tax extention form Include your self-employment earnings in earned income, even if they are less than $400 and you did not file Schedule SE. Irs tax extention form Clergy or church employee. Irs tax extention form   If you are a member of the clergy or a church employee, see the Instructions for Form 2441 for details. Irs tax extention form Statutory employee. Irs tax extention form   If you filed Schedule C (Form 1040) or C-EZ (Form 1040) to report income as a statutory employee, also include as earned income the amount from line 1 of that Schedule C (Form 1040) or C-EZ (Form 1040). Irs tax extention form Net loss. Irs tax extention form   You must reduce your earned income by any net loss from self-employment. Irs tax extention form Optional method if earnings are low or a net loss. Irs tax extention form   If your net earnings from self-employment are low or you have a net loss, you may be able to figure your net earnings by using an optional method instead of the regular method. Irs tax extention form Get Publication 334, Tax Guide for Small Business, for details. Irs tax extention form If you use an optional method to figure net earnings for self-employment tax purposes, include those net earnings in your earned income for this credit. Irs tax extention form In this case, subtract any deduction you claimed on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 27, from the total of the amounts on Schedule SE, Section B, lines 3 and 4b, to figure your net earnings. Irs tax extention form You or your spouse is a student or not able to care for self. Irs tax extention form   Your spouse who is either a full-time student or not able to care for himself or herself is treated as having earned income. Irs tax extention form His or her earned income for each month is considered to be at least $250 if there is one qualifying person in your home, or at least $500 if there are two or more. Irs tax extention form Spouse works. Irs tax extention form   If your spouse works during that month, use the higher of $250 (or $500) or his or her actual earned income for that month. Irs tax extention form Spouse qualifies for part of month. Irs tax extention form   If your spouse is a full-time student or not able to care for himself or herself for only part of a month, the full $250 (or $500) still applies for that month. Irs tax extention form You are a student or not able to care for self. Irs tax extention form   These rules also apply if you are a student or not able to care for yourself and are filing a joint return. Irs tax extention form For each month or part of a month you are a student or not able to care for yourself, your earned income is considered to be at least $250 (or $500). Irs tax extention form If you also work during that month, use the higher of $250 (or $500) or your actual earned income for that month. Irs tax extention form Both spouses qualify. Irs tax extention form   If, in the same month, both you and your spouse are either full-time students or not able to care for yourselves, only one spouse can be considered to have this earned income of $250 (or $500) for that month. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form Jim works and keeps up a home for himself and his wife Sharon. Irs tax extention form Because of an accident, Sharon is not able to care for herself for 11 months during the tax year. Irs tax extention form During the 11 months, Jim pays $3,300 of work-related expenses for Sharon's care. Irs tax extention form These expenses also qualify as medical expenses. Irs tax extention form Their adjusted gross income is $29,000 and the entire amount is Jim's earned income. Irs tax extention form Jim and Sharon's earned income limit is the smallest of the following amounts. Irs tax extention form   Jim and Sharon's Earned Income Limit   1) Work-related expenses Jim paid $   3,300   2) Jim's earned income $   29,000   3) Income considered earned by Sharon (11 × $250) $    2,750   Jim and Sharon can use $2,750 to figure the credit and treat the balance of $550 ($3,300 − $2,750) as a medical expense. Irs tax extention form However, if they use the $3,300 first as a medical expense, they cannot use any part of that amount to figure the credit. Irs tax extention form Dollar Limit There is a dollar limit on the amount of your work-related expenses you can use to figure the credit. Irs tax extention form This limit is $3,000 for one qualifying person, or $6,000 for two or more qualifying persons. Irs tax extention form If you paid work-related expenses for the care of two or more qualifying persons, the applicable dollar limit is $6,000. Irs tax extention form This limit does not need to be divided equally among them. Irs tax extention form For example, if your work-related expenses for the care of one qualifying person are $3,200 and your work-related expenses for another qualifying person are $2,800, you can use the total, $6,000, when figuring the credit. Irs tax extention form Yearly limit. Irs tax extention form   The dollar limit is a yearly limit. Irs tax extention form The amount of the dollar limit remains the same no matter how long, during the year, you have a qualifying person in your household. Irs tax extention form Use the $3,000 limit if you paid work-related expenses for the care of one qualifying person at any time during the year. Irs tax extention form Use $6,000 if you paid work-related expenses for the care of more than one qualifying person at any time during the year. Irs tax extention form Example 1. Irs tax extention form You pay $500 a month for after-school care for your son. Irs tax extention form He turned 13 on May 1 and is no longer a qualifying person. Irs tax extention form You can use the $2,000 of expenses for his care January through April to figure your credit because it is not more than the $3,000 yearly limit. Irs tax extention form Example 2. Irs tax extention form In July of this year, to permit your spouse to begin a new job, you enrolled your 3-year-old daughter in a nursery school that provides preschool childcare. Irs tax extention form You paid $300 per month for the childcare. Irs tax extention form You can use the full $1,800 you paid ($300 × 6 months) as qualified expenses because it is not more than the $3,000 yearly limit. Irs tax extention form Reduced Dollar Limit If you received dependent care benefits that you exclude or deduct from your income, you must subtract that amount from the dollar limit that applies to you. Irs tax extention form Your reduced dollar limit is figured on Form 2441, Part III. Irs tax extention form See Dependent Care Benefits, earlier, for information on excluding or deducting these benefits. Irs tax extention form Example 1. Irs tax extention form George is a widower with one child and earns $24,000 a year. Irs tax extention form He pays work-related expenses of $2,900 for the care of his 4-year-old child and qualifies to claim the credit for child and dependent care expenses. Irs tax extention form His employer pays an additional $1,000 under a qualified dependent care benefit plan. Irs tax extention form This $1,000 is excluded from George's income. Irs tax extention form Although the dollar limit for his work-related expenses is $3,000 (one qualifying person), George figures his credit on only $2,000 of the $2,900 work-related expenses he paid. Irs tax extention form This is because his dollar limit is reduced as shown next. Irs tax extention form   George's Reduced Dollar Limit 1) Maximum allowable expenses for one qualifying person $3,000 2) Minus: Dependent care benefits George excludes from income −1,000 3) Reduced dollar limit on expenses George can use for the credit $2,000 Example 2. Irs tax extention form Randall is married and both he and his wife are employed. Irs tax extention form Each has earned income in excess of $6,000. Irs tax extention form They have two children, Anne and Andy, ages 2 and 4, who attend a daycare facility licensed and regulated by the state. Irs tax extention form Randall's work-related expenses are $6,000 for the year. Irs tax extention form Randall's employer has a dependent care assistance program as part of its cafeteria plan, which allows employees to make pre-tax contributions to a dependent care flexible spending arrangement. Irs tax extention form Randall has elected to take the maximum $5,000 exclusion from his salary to cover dependent care expenses through this program. Irs tax extention form Although the dollar limit for his work-related expenses is $6,000 (two or more qualifying persons), Randall figures his credit on only $1,000 of the $6,000 work-related expense paid. Irs tax extention form This is because his dollar limit is reduced as shown next. Irs tax extention form   Randall's Reduced Dollar Limit 1) Maximum allowable expenses for two qualifying persons $6,000 2) Minus: Dependent care benefits selected from employer's cafeteria plan and  excluded from Randall's income −5,000 3) Reduced dollar limit on work-related expenses Randall can use for the credit $1,000 Amount of Credit To determine the amount of your credit, multiply your work-related expenses (after applying the earned income and dollar limits) by a percentage. Irs tax extention form This percentage depends on your adjusted gross income shown on Form 1040, line 38; Form 1040A, line 22; or Form 1040NR, line 37. Irs tax extention form The following table shows the percentage to use based on adjusted gross income. Irs tax extention form   IF your adjusted gross income is: THEN the       Over:       But not over:   percentage is:       $0   —   $15,000   35%       15,000   —   17,000   34%       17,000   —   19,000   33%       19,000   —   21,000   32%       21,000   —   23,000   31%       23,000   —   25,000   30%       25,000   —   27,000   29%       27,000   —   29,000   28%       29,000   —   31,000   27%       31,000   —   33,000   26%       33,000   —   35,000   25%       35,000   —   37,000   24%       37,000   —   39,000   23%       39,000   —   41,000   22%       41,000   —   43,000   21%       43,000   —   No limit   20%   To qualify for the credit, you must have one or more qualifying persons. Irs tax extention form You should show the expenses for each person on Form 2441, line 2, column (c). Irs tax extention form However, it is possible a qualifying person could have no expenses and a second qualifying person could have expenses exceeding $3,000. Irs tax extention form You should list -0- for the one person and the actual amount for the second person. Irs tax extention form The $6,000 limit that applies to two or more qualifying persons would still be used to compute your credit unless you already excluded or deducted, in Part III of Form 2441, certain dependent care benefits paid to you (or on your behalf) by your employer. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form Roger and Megan Paris have two qualifying children. Irs tax extention form They received $1,000 of dependent care benefits from Megan's employer during 2013, but they incurred a total of $19,500 of child and dependent care expenses. Irs tax extention form They complete Part III of Form 2441 to exclude the $1,000 from their taxable income (offsetting $1,000 of their expenses). Irs tax extention form Roger and Megan continue to line 27 to figure their credit using the remaining $18,500 of expenses. Irs tax extention form Line 30 tells them to complete line 2 without including any dependent care benefits. Irs tax extention form They complete line 2 of Form 2441, listing both Susan and James, as shown in the Line 2 example above. Irs tax extention form Line 2 Example (a) Qualifying person's name (b) Qualifying person's social security number (c) Qualified expenses you incurred and paid in 2013 for the person listed in column (a) First Last Susan Paris 123-00-6789 -0- James Paris 987-00-4321 18,500. Irs tax extention form 00 All of Susan's expenses were covered by the $1,000 of employer-provided dependent care benefits. Irs tax extention form However, their son James has special needs and they paid $18,500 for his care. Irs tax extention form Line 3 imposes a $5,000 limit for two or more children ($6,000 limit, minus $1,000 already excluded from income = $5,000) and Roger and Megan continue to complete the form. Irs tax extention form Even though line 2 indicates one of the Paris children did not have any dependent care expenses, it does not change the fact that they had two qualifying children for the purposes of Form 2441. Irs tax extention form Payments for prior year's expenses. Irs tax extention form   If you had work-related expenses in 2012 that you paid in 2013, you may be able to increase the credit on your 2013 return. Irs tax extention form Attach a statement to your form showing how you figured the additional amount from 2012. Irs tax extention form Then enter “CPYE” (Credit for Prior Year Expenses) and the amount of the credit on the dotted line next to line 9 on Form 2441. Irs tax extention form Also enter the name and taxpayer identification number of the person for whom you paid the prior year's expenses. Irs tax extention form Then add this credit to the amount on line 9, and replace the amount on line 9 with the total. Irs tax extention form See Worksheet A. Irs tax extention form Example. Irs tax extention form In 2012, Sam and Kate had childcare expenses of $2,600 for their 12-year-old child. Irs tax extention form Of the $2,600, they paid $2,000 in 2012 and $600 in 2013. Irs tax extention form Their adjusted gross income for 2012 was $30,000. Irs tax extention form Sam's earned income of $14,000 was less than Kate's earned income. Irs tax extention form A credit for their 2012 expenses paid in 2013 is not allowed in 2012. Irs tax extention form It is allowed for the 2013 tax year, but they must use their adjusted gross income for 2012 to compute the amount. Irs tax extention form The filled-in Worksheet A they used to figure this credit is shown later. Irs tax extention form Sam and Kate add the $162 from line 13 of this worksheet to their 2013 credit and enter the total on their Form 2441, line 9.
