How do i report child care expenses in conjunction with any FSA benefits we may have received?

I need help filling out the Deductions and Credit section for this. I don't know how to fill it out correctly especially because I know that you cannot claim tax-deductions on any expenses that have been reimbursed from an FSA.

Your FSA contributions are in box 10 of your W-2.

In the Child and Dependent Care Credit interview (Federal Taxes->Deductions & Credits->You and Your Family and click on "Child and Dependent Care Credit"), enter the total amount of your expenses. If the FSA part was correctly identified on the W-2, then TurboTax will be aware of it and will subtract the FSA amount from the total expense before computing the credit on the remaining amount.
