    Tax question

    Good morning everyone, can someone tell me if we are allowed to deduct time spent outside of daycare hours. I only heard about this now and want to make sure itís allowed so I can start keeping track of it this year.

    Thank you

    Yes, my accountant said you can, but essentially it goes into
    Increasing your % of the business use of home deduction. So I don’t think we will ever be properly compensated for time spent before/after work or on weekends.
    What I do is add 1.5 hours per weekday to the business use of home calculation, which nowhere equals the amount I truly work, but that equates to an 11 hr workday for me, so
    I don’t think I could add extra time on there without being flagged.
    So basically it means your total claim of all the utilities and mortgage interest etc will be higher by a certain percentage. It’s not going to amount to a huge deduction.

A few tips...

If you visited or if you're using a childcare provider found on DaycareBear, do not hesitate to leave a review. This will most certainly help other parents!
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
