What all can I claim other then the kids? I pay health insurance through my employer, can I claim what I've spent on premiums, like what they take from each paycheck? I don't think I can claim my co pays cause they are usually put on a cafeteria plan and have very few expenses outside of that. I spent a few grand on daycare this year. Is there a cut off to claim that? I asked the person who did our taxes last year but she said I would have had to pay 5 grand plus to claim that. She was also through jackson hewitt and I doubt she actually knows. Can I claim my student loans now that I am paying them? Granted, I've only paid a couple hundred so far so not sure. Im trying to start collecting documents and if I don't have to, that would be great.
