After School Childcare Tax Credit

You may be able to claim the child and dependent care credit if you paid expenses for the care of your child to enable you (and your spouse, if filing a joint return) to work or actively look for work.

A qualifying individual for the child and dependent care credit is your dependent qualifying child who is under age 13 when the care is provided. Being a full time student in our IQuest MindQuest Afterschool Program qualifies you for this tax benefit. Full IRS article
