National Scholarships and Funding
For day camps:
● A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account allows parents to be reimbursed
on a pre-tax basis for child care or adult dependent care expenses for qualified
dependents that are necessary to allow parents to work, look for work, or to
attend school full time. Visit the FSA Feds Web site for more information.
● In certain circumstances, daycare expenses, including transportation by a care
provider, may be considered dependent care services and paid with pre-tax
dollars. Visit the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for more information.
● Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit: The IRS allows an income tax credit of up
to $6,000 of dependent care expenses if you have two or more dependents (up
to $3,000 for one dependent). The amount of the credit is based on your adjusted
gross income and applies only to your federal taxes. This applies to qualifying
day camp expenses. Visit the FSA Feds Web site for more information.
