My daughters father and I have shared parenting in Ohio. I have her about 70% of the time and he has her about 30%. He is responsible for 60% of daycare costs and I am responsible for 40%. I know he can't claim child care costs, despite her being his dependent this year, since she is with me more than him, but when I go to enter in the info about child care costs to get the deduction, do I enter the entire amount we both paid, or just the 40% that actually came out of my pocket. I feel like it should be the 40%, which is what I have always done, but someone told me that since it is like child support and part of the court order that I should be able to declare the entire amount despite him paying to the facility directly. I haven't found any specific guidelines about this, so any insight would be very helpful. Thank you for your time.
