Heads up, there is a new TaxSlayer blog entry posted this morning regarding a check box added to the W-2 for Medicaid waiver payments. Have not tested it out yet but it claims to take care of the Medicaid waiver and the EITC. Does not mention adjusting for child tax credit or dependent day care credit.
