How do I enter foreign child care of provider with no EIN nor SSN

Sher_48

Client lived in Austria, paid childcare there and I want to use on Form 2441.  However, cannot get rid of diagnostic requiring provider EIN.  They did not move nor refuse, just do not have an EIN.

Try ForeignUS

Typing 'FOREIGNUS' in EIN box does not remove critical diagnostic.  I assume you meant to put it in the EIN box?

My choices seem to be provide EIN, or tick one of boxes that

1.  taxpayer unable to get EIN, since provider moved

2. Provider refuses to give EIN

Yes I did mean put that in the EIN box. It works in other places so I thought it might work here.

I guess you need to check one of those boxes even though both are not correct answers.

Per Internal Revenue Manual, for a foreign  care provider you need to enter “LAFCP” ( short for Living Abroad Foreign Care Provider). Also, complete the Foreign section on Screen 33.
