Researches past posts and cannot find. Per instructions to 2441 you can claim the child and dependent care credit for a special needs child even if over age 13. My client's child turned 14 and I cannot figure how to claim the credit on the ProSeries input. It's not on 2441 or Info worksheet. What am I missing?
I thought the PS default was to allow it and give a warning about the age in review?
Is there some other limitation you're hitting?
Try changing the DOB to <13 to see what happens.
Code D says Disabled Child Age 19 or older or disabled child older than taxpayer or spouse??? It doesn't address this issue.
Ah, sure of course. Sorry about that. I dont think I have had this issue before. As @rbynaker stated, what if you put daycare amount in there, is there a warning? Does it calculate credit? I think the review does warn you re: age.
It calculates the credit. It gives you a warning. Upon e-file you have to disable error checking. I thought there was a way to do it "properly" without having to override error checking.
