Child Care Tax Credits
There are tax credits at the federal and state level that can benefit your families.
Families who are eligible for the Federal Earned Income Tax
Credit can reduce the amount of taxes owed or even get a refund which can be
used to pay child care expenses. Families may also qualify for a tax credit
through the Maine Dependent Care State Tax Credit. Maine taxpayers who enroll
their child or children in a program with a Quality Certificate of Step 4
could also receive a double tax credit, if eligible.
