Today, HCAOA joined with 60 other advocacy groups to send a letter to the House of Representatives supporting the federal Credit for Caring Act – a commonsense bipartisan bill to create a non-refundable tax credit for family caregivers who work.
More about the bill:
The Credit for Caring Act would create a new, non-refundable federal tax credit of up to $5,000 for eligible working family caregivers to help address the financial challenges of caregiving. Eligible working family caregivers caring for loved ones of all ages could receive the credit if the care recipient meets certain functional or cognitive limitations or other requirements. This tax credit would help family caregivers who care for non-dependents or who do not live with the person they are assisting.
