    Can you give a sample sentence for each? Or is this perhaps a pronunciation question? If I had to guess, I'd say that take care off isn't what you mean, as any sentence with that sequence of words would likely appear contrived or unnatural.

    Thanks for reply Erin.
    Actually, i have seen many post on internet where the usage of 'taken care of' and 'taken care off' has been little confusing to me.
    Now see the examples below, do you find these sentances correct?

    I take care of my kids.
    All the issues regarding the child care has been taken care off.

    Hi,

    In both of the sentences above, the word used should be “of”. I believe the “off” in the second sentence is simply a typographical error. Both sentences should use the phrase “taken care of”.

    I hope this helps!
    Thanks! I never tire of the interesting topics I encounter as a Private ESL Tutor!
