KinderCare prints out a "Year-End Statement". This statement is intended to provide you with a tool to assist with your income tax return preparation. The information on the statement should be tied back to your personal records (check copies, receipts, and other information) to determine the appropriate amounts of dependent care expenses to claim in preparing your tax return.

Why are Year-End Statements not sent to me automatically?
Since the Year-End Statement provided by KinderCare Learning Centers may not be sufficient in the event of an audit, and many of our families use other documentation as proof of payment for tax purposes, we provide Year-End Statements only upon request.
If the Year-End Statement provided by KinderCare Learning Centers is not sufficient in the event of an audit, what should I use as proof of payment made to KinderCare Learning Centers?
The best representation of what you have paid in child care expenses are copies of your cancelled checks, your bank or debit/credit statement, online payments and/or money order receipts, which we would suggest keeping for future reference.
