But those people at Liberty Tax never told me nothing about this
I'm a little concerned about an adult with at least one dependent child who is not aware that child care costs are deductable. Not for this guy's wallet, but for that child. Because I don't have any kids, but because I've filled out tax forms before I'm aware that you can claim child care costs and get a deduction for them.
Somehow, this stupid slob managed to get someone to have sex with him, produce a kid, incur child care expenses, and yet through all that never learn that those expenses are deductable. I don't know how this happened unless he's either a pampered brat who until this year always had this stuff done for him (maybe he's recently divorced from a woman who did the taxes for the family before she got sick of being married to a clueless child) or he's just really, really stupid and it never occurred to him that JUST MAYBE he should ask if he could deduct child care expenses before just shrugging and sending the feds more money than they were entitled to.
Oh, wait- there's another possibility. Maybe he spent years moving from state to state to avoid paying child support before finally being tracked down by the authorities and being forced into accepting his financial responsibilities. Now that he's being compelled to act like an adult, he needs to learn the rules, including the rules involving the deduction of child care costs.
