Childcare Tax Credit

Childcare Tax Credit Blog

One issue that has lead many to put off re-entering the workforce from the pandemic fallout is the cost and difficulty in terms of finding affordable and quality childcare. The SBAC has determined it is such a significant issue that it has been added to our agenda for the 2022 Spring Session.

The childcare tax credit will provide working families resources to offset the costs associated with childcare. To be eligible, households must jointly earn an annual income below $75,000 and have at least one child under the age of 17.  Taxpayers that file individually must earn less than $45,000 and have one child under the age of 17.

Under this program, taxpayers shall receive a $1500 tax credit for the first child under age 17. An additional $500 will be allocated to each additional child under the age of 17 with a max payment of $2500 per family. This credit is intended to be used to offset the costs associated with childcare.

The program will be capped at $100,000,000 absent further appropriations.  This tax credit will sunset in 2025 unless extended by the legislature.
