Item #2 – For the last 12 months, all documents showing the cost for current work-related child care expenses and costs (or for which reimbursement is sought – ask us about this).

Please include a breakdown of the cost for only each child, usually available from your employer’s Human Resources office, if applicable. For example: cost for family is $400, cost for only the employee is $200, and cost for spouse is $150 = cost for child of $50.
