Topic 602 - Child and Dependent Care Credit

You may be able to claim the child and dependent care credit if you paid work-related expenses for the care of a qualifying individual. The credit is generally a percentage of the amount of work-related expenses you paid to a care provider for the care of a qualifying individual. The percentage depends on your adjusted gross income. Work-related expenses qualifying for the credit are those paid for the care of a qualifying individual to enable you to work or actively look for work.

Expenses are paid for the care of a qualifying individual if the primary function is to assure the individual's well-being and protection. In general, amounts paid for services outside your household qualify for the credit if the care is provided for (i) a qualifying individual who is your qualifying child under age 13 or (ii) a qualifying individual who regularly spends at least 8 hours each day in your household.

The total expenses that may be used to calculate the credit are capped at $3,000 (for one qualifying individual) or at $6,000 (for two or more qualifying individuals). The dollar limits may differ depending on the tax year in question. The expenses qualifying for the computation of the credit must be reduced by the amount of any dependent care benefits provided by your employer that you exclude from gross income. In general, you can exclude up to $5,000 for dependent care benefits received from your employer. Also, generally, the expenses claimed may not exceed the lesser of your earned income or your spouse’s earned income. A special rule applies if your spouse is a full-time student or incapable of self-care. For additional information, refer to Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses.

For purposes of the child and dependent care credit, a qualifying individual is:

  1. Your dependent qualifying child who is under age 13 when the care is provided,
  2. Your spouse who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care and who has the same principal place of abode as you for more than half of the year, or
  3. Your dependent who is physically or mentally incapable of self-care, and who has the same principal place of abode as you for more than half of the year. For this purpose, whether an individual is your dependent is determined without regard to the individual's gross income, whether the individual files a joint return, or whether you are a dependent of another taxpayer.

An individual is physically or mentally incapable of self-care if, as a result of a physical or mental defect, the individual is incapable of caring for his or her hygiene or nutritional needs, or requires the full-time attention of another person for the individual's own safety or the safety of others.

For more information on who is a dependent or a qualifying child, refer to Publication 501, Exemptions, Standard Deduction, and Filing Information.

A noncustodial parent may not treat a child as a qualifying individual for purposes of the credit, even if the noncustodial parent may claim an exemption for the child. For more information on divorced or separated parents or parents who live apart at all times during the last six months of the year, refer to the topic Child of Divorced or Separated Parents or Parents Living Apart in Publication 503, Child and Dependent Care Expenses.

If a person is a qualifying individual for only a part of the tax year, only those expenses paid during that part of the year are included in calculating the credit.

In addition to paying for the care of a qualifying individual, you must meet all of the following conditions to claim the credit:

  1. Your payment must be made to a care provider who is not your spouse, the parent of your child who is your qualifying individual, your child under age 19, or a dependent of you or your spouse.
  2. You must file a joint return if you are married.
  3. You must provide the taxpayer identification number (usually the social security number) of each qualifying individual on the return on which you claim the credit.
  4. You must report the name, address, and taxpayer identification number (either the social security number, or the employer identification number) of the care provider on your return. If the care provider is a tax-exempt organization, you need only report the name and address on your return. You can use Form W-10 (PDF), Dependent Care Provider's Identification and Certification, to request this information from the care provider. If you do not provide information regarding the care provider, you may still be eligible for the credit if you can show that you exercised due diligence in attempting to provide the required information.

If you qualify for the credit, complete Form 2441 (PDF) and Form 1040 (PDF) or Form 1040A (PDF). If you received dependent care benefits from your employer (this amount should be shown on your Form W-2 (PDF), you must complete Part III of Form 2441. You cannot claim the child and dependent care credit if you use Form 1040EZ (PDF).

If you pay a provider to care for your dependent or spouse in your home, you may be a household employer. If you are a household employer, you may have to withhold and pay social security and Medicare taxes and pay federal unemployment tax. For more information, refer to Publication 926, Household Employer's Tax Guide, or Topic 756.

Print 1040ez federal tax form 13. Print 1040ez federal tax form   Payment of Taxes Table of Contents How To Make Deposits When To Make Deposits Amount of DepositsSafe Harbor Rule Generally, semimonthly deposits of excise taxes are required. Print 1040ez federal tax form A semimonthly period is the first 15 days of a month (the first semimonthly period) or the 16th through the last day of a month (the second semimonthly period). Print 1040ez federal tax form However, no deposit is required for the situations listed below; the taxes are payable with Form 720. Print 1040ez federal tax form The net liability for taxes listed in Part I (Form 720) does not exceed $2,500 for the quarter. Print 1040ez federal tax form The gas guzzler tax is being paid on a one-time filing. Print 1040ez federal tax form The liability is for taxes listed in Part II (Form 720), except for the floor stocks tax which generally requires a single deposit. Print 1040ez federal tax form How To Make Deposits Electronic deposit requirement. Print 1040ez federal tax form   You must use electronic funds transfer to make excise tax deposits. Print 1040ez federal tax form Generally, electronic funds transfers are made using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). Print 1040ez federal tax form If you do not want to use EFTPS, you can arrange for your tax professional, financial institution, payroll service, or other trusted third party to make deposits on your behalf. Print 1040ez federal tax form Also, you may arrange for your financial institution to initiate a same-day wire payment on your behalf. Print 1040ez federal tax form   EFTPS is a free service provided by the Department of Treasury. Print 1040ez federal tax form Services provided by your tax professional, financial institution, payroll service, or other third party may have a fee. Print 1040ez federal tax form To get more information about EFTPS or to enroll in EFTPS, visit www. Print 1040ez federal tax form eftps. Print 1040ez federal tax form gov or call 1-800-555-4477. Print 1040ez federal tax form Additional information about EFTPS is also available in Publication 966, Electronic Federal Tax Payment System: A Guide to Getting Started. Print 1040ez federal tax form    Depositing on time. Print 1040ez federal tax form For EFTPS deposits to be on time, you must initiate the transaction at least 1 day before the date the deposit is due (before 8:00 p. Print 1040ez federal tax form m. Print 1040ez federal tax form Eastern time). Print 1040ez federal tax form You will automatically be enrolled in EFTPS when you apply for an EIN. Print 1040ez federal tax form You will receive a separate mailing containing instructions for activating your EFTPS enrollment after you receive your EIN. Print 1040ez federal tax form When To Make Deposits There are two methods for determining deposits: the regular method and the alternative method. Print 1040ez federal tax form The regular method applies to all taxes in Part I of Form 720 except for communications and air transportation taxes if deposits are based on amounts billed or tickets sold, rather than on amounts actually collected. Print 1040ez federal tax form See Alternative method below. Print 1040ez federal tax form If you are depositing more than one tax under a method, combine all the taxes under the method and make one deposit for the semimonthly period. Print 1040ez federal tax form Regular method. Print 1040ez federal tax form   The deposit of tax for a semimonthly period is due by the 14th day following that period. Print 1040ez federal tax form Generally, this is the 29th day of a month for the first semimonthly period and the 14th day of the following month for the second semimonthly period. Print 1040ez federal tax form If the 14th or the 29th day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, you must make the deposit by the immediately preceding day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Print 1040ez federal tax form Alternative method (IRS Nos. Print 1040ez federal tax form 22, 26, 27, and 28). Print 1040ez federal tax form   Deposits of communications and air transportation taxes may be based on taxes included in amounts billed or tickets sold during a semimonthly period instead of on taxes actually collected during the period. Print 1040ez federal tax form Under the alternative method, the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during a semimonthly period is considered collected during the first 7 days of the second following semimonthly period. Print 1040ez federal tax form The deposit of tax is due by the 3rd banking day after the 7th day of that period. Print 1040ez federal tax form   For an example of the alternative method, see the Instructions for Form 720. Print 1040ez federal tax form To use the alternative method, you must keep a separate account of the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during the month and report on Form 720 the tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold and not the amount of tax that is actually collected. Print 1040ez federal tax form For example, amounts billed in December, January, and February are considered collected during January, February, and March and are reported on Form 720 as the tax for the 1st quarter of the calendar year. Print 1040ez federal tax form The separate account for each month must reflect: All items of tax included in amounts billed or tickets sold during the month, and Other items of adjustment relating to tax for prior months (within the statute of limitations on credits or refunds). Print 1040ez federal tax form The separate account for any month cannot include an adjustment resulting from a refusal to pay or inability to collect unless the refusal has been reported to the IRS. Print 1040ez federal tax form See Uncollected Tax Report in chapter 4. Print 1040ez federal tax form The net amount of tax that is considered collected during the semimonthly period must be either: The net amount of tax reflected in the separate account for the corresponding semimonthly period of the preceding month, or One-half of the net amount of tax reflected in the separate account for the preceding month. Print 1040ez federal tax form Special rule for deposits of taxes in September. Print 1040ez federal tax form   See the Instructions for Form 720 for a special rule on deposits made in September. Print 1040ez federal tax form Amount of Deposits Deposits for a semimonthly period generally must be at least 95% of the net tax liability for that period unless the safe harbor rule (discussed later) applies. Print 1040ez federal tax form Generally, you do not have to make a deposit for a period in which you incurred no tax liability. Print 1040ez federal tax form Net tax liability. Print 1040ez federal tax form   Your net tax liability is your tax liability for the period minus any claims on Schedule C (Form 720) for the period. Print 1040ez federal tax form You may figure your net tax liability for a semimonthly period by dividing your net liability incurred during the calendar month by two. Print 1040ez federal tax form If you use this method, you must use it for all semimonthly periods in the calendar quarter. Print 1040ez federal tax form Do not reduce your liability by any amounts from Form 720X. Print 1040ez federal tax form Safe Harbor Rule The safe harbor rule applies separately to deposits under the regular method and the alternative method. Print 1040ez federal tax form Persons who filed Form 720 for the look-back quarter (the 2nd calendar quarter preceding the current quarter) are considered to meet the semimonthly deposit requirement if the deposit for each semimonthly period in the current quarter is at least 1/6 (16. Print 1040ez federal tax form 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Print 1040ez federal tax form For the semimonthly period for which the additional deposit is required, the additional deposit must be at least 11/90 12. Print 1040ez federal tax form 23%), 10/90 (11. Print 1040ez federal tax form 12%) for non-EFTPS, of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Print 1040ez federal tax form Also, the total deposit for that semimonthly period must be at least 1/6 (16. Print 1040ez federal tax form 67%) of the net tax liability reported for the look-back quarter. Print 1040ez federal tax form Exceptions. Print 1040ez federal tax form   The safe harbor rule does not apply to: The 1st and 2nd quarters beginning on or after the effective date of an increase in the rate of tax unless the deposit of taxes for each semimonthly period in the calendar quarter is at least 1/6 (16. Print 1040ez federal tax form 67%) of the tax liability you would have had for the look-back quarter if the increased rate of tax had been in effect for that look-back quarter, Any quarter if liability includes any tax not in effect throughout the look-back quarter, or For deposits under the alternative method, any quarter if liability includes any tax not in effect throughout the look-back quarter and the month preceding the look-back quarter. Print 1040ez federal tax form Requirements to be met. Print 1040ez federal tax form   For the safe harbor rule to apply, you must: Make each deposit timely at an authorized financial institution, and Pay any underpayment for the current quarter by the due date of the return. Print 1040ez federal tax form    The IRS may withdraw the right to make deposits of tax using the safe harbor rule from any person not complying with these rules. Print 1040ez federal tax form Tax rate increases. Print 1040ez federal tax form   You must modify the safe harbor rule if there has been an increase in the rate of tax. Print 1040ez federal tax form You must figure your tax liability in the look-back quarter as if the increased rate had been in effect. Print 1040ez federal tax form To qualify for the safe harbor rule, your deposits cannot be less than 1/6 of the refigured tax liability.
