How do i edit and remove the child care expenses

To edit the child care expenses, do a Search (upper right) for child care expenses and click on the jump-to link (Mac users must look for child care expenses in the Topics List).

 

This will start the Child and Dependent Care Credit interview, during which you can see and edit the child care expenses.

 

If you want to just delete everything on this subject instead, then do the following:

 

*** Desktop***

 

1. go to View (at the top), choose Forms, and select form 2441. Note the Delete Form button at the bottom of the screen.

 

*** Online ***

 

3. go to Tax Tools (on the left), and navigate to Tools->Delete a form

4. delete form(s) 2441.

Tried to delete form multiple times on my MacBook version, Should be straight forward. It always shows up to fix during final federal smart check, I have no provider nor expenses. Boing in circles . Any thoughts on a workaround? Thank you.

@Derek_H07, @dwca2020, after deleting the form, log out and then clear your browser's cache and cookies; if the issue still persists, try using a different browser altogether and see what happens.

Try the following steps instead.

 

Go into the federal section of the program.

  1. Select Deductions & Credits
  2. Select Child & Dependent Care Credit
  3. You will see a question asking Did you pay for child or dependent care in 2020?  Select No.
  4. This will remove the credit from being generated on your return.

It doesnt show this questions. It shows "do you want to review your child and dependent care credit information?" and then I click yes; next it asks you about if you are a full student or disabled, and then you click no, and then it brings you back to the initial screen with the credit and deductions, including the child care credit. When you try to file, it asks you to add the name of the child care provider and other information.

It appears you may not have any earned income entered.  You will need to enter a "Fake" W2 in order to get access to the childcare credit interview questions. 

 

In the "Wages & Income" tab select "Job (W2)" and put in a fake employer with any 9 digit number for the federal ID. Put in an amount in box 1 wages.

 

Then you should be able to get into the "Credit for Childcare" topic and delete the entries there.  After deleting the child and dependent care entries go back and delete the "fake" W2 entries.
