Line 10, on W-2 is Dependent Care Benefits.  These would be dependent care payments paid to you or incurred on your behalf.  The box is on the W-2, however, may be blank.

This information relates to Flexible Spending Accounts and Dependent Care. 

Check your entries on W-2, and Dependent Care Credit.

The following information is from the IRS addressing a question related to W-2, Box 10 that may be helpful.

Thanks for the response.  But Line 10 is blank, and there is not Flexible spending account or Dependent Care benefits, so why would I need to enter a description?

If this is an error on a Worksheet or from the review before you file, try putting None in Description.  If that doesn't work, and it is a Worksheet, Go to My Account, Tools, Delete a Form, Delete only the Worksheet.  Worksheets are not sent to the IRS and sometimes it corrects what the computer detects as an error that isn't there.

Ah, there was a 0 in a field, with no description.  When I removed the 0, all was well.  Thanks.
