WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service issued a filing season reminder today that those taxpayers who pay expenses for the care of a qualifying person while working or looking for work may qualify for an important tax credit.

The Child and Dependent Care Credit is expanded for tax year 2021. This means that more taxpayers will qualify this year than ever before, and the credit will be worth more. Taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of more than $438,000 are not eligible for this credit.

“There are many important tax credits available for families, and we don’t want anyone to overlook the Child and Dependent Care Credit,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “We encourage families and others who may qualify for this credit to carefully review the criteria to make sure they receive the maximum amount they’re entitled to. We also encourage the tax professional communities and others to share this important information.”

Depending on their income, taxpayers can get a credit worth 50% of their qualifying childcare expenses. For tax year 2021, the maximum eligible expense for this credit is $8,000 for one qualifying person and $16,000 for two or more.
