About the Child & Dependent Care Tax Credit
Year End W-10 & Child Care Payment Statements
Ordinarily, families must supply their child care provider with a blank W-10 Form and must calculate their own end-of-year child care payments. I like to make convenient therefore I fill out, print and distribute W-10 Forms to my clients with the total amount of child care tuition paid for the previous year. W-10 Forms for the previous year are given out no later than Jan 31st.
Families can also request a Year-End Payment Statement if you desire. W-10 Forms and Year-End Payment Statements can be delivered to you in the method that you prefer either as a hard-copy given in person (printed), delivered through postal mail or emailed as a PDF file. Once the documents are received I recommend looking at the total amount on the W-10 Form that I give you and compare that amount with your own records to ensure that the amounts match and are correct. Extra copies of the completed W-10 Form for previous years may be available year-round and can be given to clients as a courtesy however is not guaranteed. Simply request one from me and I can check to see if one can be made available.
If your family was enrolled at Helping Hands Childcare during the previous calendar year and has since been withdrawn a completed W-10 Form is mailed to the address listed according to my records. If you are a parent of a withdrawn child of our program and you did not receive a mailed W-10 Form please Contact Us so that one can be distributed to you.
*Please note that records for withdrawn children are only kept for three years from the date of the child's withdrawal. If requesting end-of-year statements or W-10 forms for previous years which go further than three years we may be unable to accommodate your request.
