Family Support – Caregiver Tax Credit Bill Introduced

Reps. Tom Reed (R-NY) and Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) have introduced the Credit for Caring Act of 2016 (H.R. 4708). The bill supports family caregivers by offering a federal tax credit of up to $3,000 for those who qualify. The tax credit would provide eligible family caregivers caring for loved ones of all ages with some financial relief and help them pay for services such as home care, adult day care, respite care, and other supports. The Arc supports this legislation that will help to ensure the financial security of family caregivers of persons with disabilities.
