U.S. Congressman Jon C. Porter
Increased Tax Relief for Child Care and Early Learning Programs
Congressman Jon Porter (R-NV) announced today the introduction of legislation that expands the Dependent and Child Care Tax Credit and makes it refundable.
"For many Americans, child care represents the second largest expense next to the rent or mortgage payment," said Porter. "The tax code has not kept pace with the rising costs of child care, making it more difficult for parents to take advantage of tax relief when it comes to the child care tax credit," he said. "While the state legislature works to find ways to provide all-day kindergarten, this legislation will get families one step closer to that goal. This bill will provide greater access to the voluntary programs, that help ensure our children are ready to achieve when they enter school," said Porter.
