Can You Get Paid to Send Your Kids to Summer Activities?


We frequently hear about companies and a select few individuals obtaining tax breaks through unconventional, mythical methods. How about a practical one that can be used for something extremely important, like parents and their children?

You don’t have to hire some elusive high-top accountant to know that sending your child to summer camp or summer activities can be a tax benefit.

So how does it work?

The first and most common way:

Save the receipts! At tax time, if both parents worked, you may be eligible for dependent care credits. You will either need a letter from the childcare provider or gather this information. The information includes the provider’s name, address, Tax ID number, and the amount paid to them. Then all of this can be used to calculate how much credit you are eligible for.

Second way:

If you are an employee, some companies offer a dependent care account! It’s a similar concept to flex spending accounts, but for childcare instead of medical expenses. If the company offers this, the money is a pre-tax deduction from your paycheck.

Why is this beneficial?

Your “taxable income” goes down because you get “paid less,” in a sense.

So, the taxes coming out of the paycheck are less. You probably have to substantiate the childcare expense with the employer to get reimbursed from your funds. Be careful, since it’s a use-it-or-lose-it situation. If you opt for this method, you won’t be able to receive additional dependent care credits unless you exceed the amount deducted from your check.
