How can I claim child care expenses for my nephew?

I don't want to claim him as a dependent but I paid almost $4000 worth of after school care for him but Turbo tax will not allow me to file/claim that amount. Please help. Thank you.

Unfortunately, you can't claim the child care credit for your nephew, since you aren't claiming him as a dependent.

Thank you, but I don't need to claim the child care credit. Can I claim the $4000 under another provision?

No, there's no other credit or deduction that's available, unfortunately.
