The following question was asked yesterday:
In the US, are day-care expenses tax deductible? And if so under what conditions?
For example, if one parent is working, but the other is still going to (graduate) school, is any kind of deduction possible?
While this specific question is clearly off-topic, due to the specificity with which the questioner asked (specifying the explicit details about whether the deduction applies with one parent in grad school), is the more generic question
What options do I have for tax deductions or credits related to my daycare expenses? What do I need to pay attention to?
Are questions about the mechanics of parenting (ie, taxes, finance, etc.) acceptable on this site? If so, what are the limits?
