Can you claim a child and dependent care tax credit if you have dependent care account

Yes, but only if the expenses exceed the amount in Box 10 of your W-2. You will still need to complete the Child and Dependent Care Credit section to ensure that you don't wind up paying tax on the amount in box 10.
