My wife stays at home with our son and does not earn an income. We have the option for a Dependant Care Flexible Spending Account through my work, just going through open enrollment now. We plan to put my son in part time preschool from Sept-May.  Would this technically qualify for DCFSA or does the coverage only cover if it allows my wife to work?  Iím seeing some federal websites that show preschool as eligible without stated restrictions but my accountant has said otherwise. Canít seem to get a straight answer on this, any help would be appreciated.

You cannot use DCFSA unless both spouses are working. (or other, as stated above)
