Summer Day Camp Expenses – July 2010 (ASL) – YouTube video text script


Hi, I’m Thomas, and I work for the IRS.    

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 for that may help you qualify for a tax credit on next year’s tax return?
