IRS Form W-10

IRS Form W-10 is a tax form used in the United States to provide information about the care provider for dependent care benefits. Taxpayers use this form to identify individuals or organizations that provide care for their dependents, such as a child or disabled spouse, while the taxpayers work or look for work. The information on Form W-10 includes the care provider’s name, address, and taxpayer identification number (either Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number).

The primary use of Form W-10 is to support claims for the child and dependent care expenses credit on a taxpayer’s return. By submitting this form, taxpayers can verify the legitimacy of their child and dependent care expenses and ensure compliance with IRS requirements for claiming the credit. The credit helps offset some of the costs associated with dependent care necessary for employment. Taxpayers need to obtain and keep this form in their records but not submit it with their tax return unless specifically requested by the IRS.
