How do I apply for childcare costs?

You must apply for the subsidy on your income tax return on the Child Schedule.


It is best to submit your income tax return to the tax office electronically. The tax office does not accept tax returns by e-mail. You must sign your tax return in person in order to submit it by the deadline.

The best way to do this is to use ELSTER (electronic tax return).
