Summer Day Camp Expenses - July 2010 -YouTube video text script

HERE’S A TIP FROM THE I-R-S.

HI… I’M KIM… AND I AM AN INTERN AT THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE.

NOW THAT SCHOOL’S OUT…WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO DO WITH YOUR CHILDREN?

IF YOU’RE SENDING THEM TO SUMMER CAMP…

DID YOU KNOW THAT THE MONEY YOU PAY MAY HELP YOU QUALIFY FOR A TAX CREDIT ON NEXT YEAR’S TAX RETURN?

IT’S TRUE. 

SUMMER DAY CAMP EXPENSES MAY HELP YOU QUALIFY FOR THE CHILD AND DEPENDENT CARE CREDIT.

REMEMBER… IT MUST BE A DAY CAMP.

OVERNIGHT CAMPS DO NOT QUALIFY.

AND THERE’S MORE.

IF YOU PAY SOMEONE TO WATCH YOUR CHILD AT HOME WHILE YOU WORK...YOU MAY STILL QUALIFY FOR A CREDIT OF UP TO 35 PERCENT OF WHAT YOU PAY.

TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CHILD AND DEPENDENT CARE CREDIT AND TO FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY… GO TO I-R-S-DOT-GOV.
