What error are you getting?  If they got dep care benefits but had no childcare, it should flow over and become taxable income to them.  

Do you have a ZERO in the child care box on the dependent worksheet for the dep that didn't have care?

Just leave the childcare box empty on the fed info worksheet and the 2441 wont require any additional entries.

I have to wonder if there's a piece of the puzzle missing.

Was anything forfeited?

There's supposed to be a plan administrator in charge and funds should not be disbursed unless substantiated with expenses.  It's a "use it or lose it" thing.

Me thinks OP was referring to an amount in Box 10 of the W-2 and taxpayer never spent it.
