I just followed the wizards in ufile. Once you add dependent children you can input child care expenses. I just input the numbers from the tax receipt given by the school. The software will auto assign the benifit to the most beneficial person in the family.

Does your partner work or go to school? Op said wife us homemaker; I believe that disqualifies from child care deduction as she would be able to take care of the kids herself.

Sorry for the short answer that wasn't clear. Yes Montesorri and even private schools and almost any non-family member childcare . Nanny, student etc are claimable but if like OP your wife doesn't work you can't claim anything. For 100% clarity there are some exceptions full-time student etc. Homemaker etc is explicitly what is not covered.TLSRULZ wrote: ↑Apr 2nd, 2018 11:30 pmTwo things to clarify
- yes.. my wife works full-time.
- the Montessori my kids attend is probably classified as a daycare (even though providing Jk and Sk).
As to if I'm fileing incorrectly.. Revenue Canada did contact me and ask for me to submit the receipts .. so I'm sure after that they would have said something.
