Total Paid to Care Provider

Should the total amount paid to care provider include social security tax and medicare tax if I paid those taxes on their behalf?  For example:  The gross wage figure I paid to the college student to watch my kids includes those tax amounts, that I then paid to the IRS on her behalf.  The net wage figure that she took home as pay does not include those tax amounts.

 

Which figure do I use when completing TurboTax as the "total amount paid to care provider in 2020?"CareProviderTotalPayment.jpg
