Is this payment for extended day care- before and after school?
No, just for him to attend all day Kindergarten. He can go for "free" from 8:00 am to noon but to finish out the rest of the day until 3:00 costs me $250.00 per month. It is paid directly to the school district via online account along with his lunch money. Sorry if that is too much info, I am not sure how much you need.
So, this would mean that the amount paid is for extended care and not tuition. You can get a child care credit for such amount. However, amount paid towards lunch money will not be included for the credit purposes.
Ok, I trust your opinion! Thanks for your help, I really appreicate it!
Shoot, sorry - I didnt realize saying thanks would not allow me to accept this as closed. If you want to just send a blank reply, I will go accept your answer right away so you can get the credit.
