You are entitled to take the credit because you paid someone to care for your child while you worked. She is required to claim the income. You will need to include the name, address and social security number of your day care provider. So, you will have to have a talk with her if you want to claim the credit.

And what she claims on her own tax return is her responsibility, not yours.
