Client is filing married filing separtely, with 2 dependent childred (3 & 5 years old) with child care expenses

that total 12,400.00.  Information will not calulate on 2441, do not understand why.  I see a box that I need to check on the top of the form for MFS, but I do not see how.

Thanks

Married filing separate always makes the tax returns so much fun, doesn't it?

Program does need spouse income in order to not alot a higher % to the daycare expense.  So scroll your little #$@& down to the section under line 18 and enter spouse income in smart worksheet box B.
