Most likely, you will answer no. Only answer yes if you paid dependent or child care expenses in addition to those paid with FSA dollars.

If you have dependent care fees that were paid or reimbursed by an FSA, the amount paid or reimbursed will reduce the dollar limit on the amount of the Credit for Child and Dependent Care Expenses that you may take. If your dependent care expenses have been fully reimbursed by your FSA, you are ineligible for the credit.
