How do I claim the expenses of an employee-nanny and what expenses can I claim?
We employed a nanny last year. To do so, we obtained a business number, remitted to CRA the deductions (tax, ei, cpp) and the employer top-ups (ei, cpp), and provided to her a T4.
In doing our taxes, how do we claim these expenses?
The reason for my confusion is that turbotax prompts me for "child care receipts". We don't have receipts, just the payroll stubs and T4 we issued to the nanny. Is there something I'm missing? Am I supposed to enter the child care expenses differently? Or do I just include the amount as a "receipt"? Do I need a more advanced version of turbotax?
Second question: what to claim. I assume that we claim her gross salary plus all employer top-ups.
