Is it worth it to contribute to a dependent care FSA?

Daycare will only be used full time until August 2018, total cost would be roughly $4,000. Where will I get the most money back, paying into the dependent care FSA or paying out of pocket and claiming on my taxes?

Is it worth it to contribute to a dependent care FSA?

That's a tough call, since we don't know what Federal tax law changes are going to be.
