Where do I enter child care expenses in TurboTax?

Before entering your childcare expense amounts, you need to enter some basic info about your dependants.

Once you've entered your dependants:

  1. In the upper-right corner of your screen, select Find*.
  2. In the Find window, type "Child care expenses," select it from the list and then select Go.
  3. Answer Yes to the question Did you pay for child care? and then follow the steps to enter your child care expenses.

*If you don't see the Find button, you may not have completed the Setting Up/Introduction section of your return. Continue through the Setting Up section until the Find button appears.

Note for Quebec: If applicable, TurboTax will prompt you to claim the additional provincial tax credit for childcare expenses.
