Why do I need to enter my child care provider information?

If child care provider information is not entered, your e-filed tax return that has a Dependent Care Credit on it may be rejected. If the return is accepted by the IRS, the credit may later be disallowed unless you can prove due diligence in trying to obtain the child care provider information. You need to get your child care provider's Employer Identification number or Social Security number to include on your tax return if you're claiming the Dependent Care Credit.
