I am a stay at home mom. I am also the person who handles our finances (including savings and investments) and manages our rental property.

I know that if I were working then there would be certain tax credits/deductions available for child care time.

Are they still available to us?


No. The problem is that one of you has no earned income. See Publication 503.
