Child Care Tax Credit

Child Care Tax Credit

If you have paid for child care at an Arkansas licensed/registered Better Beginnings program and you meet the requirements for claiming the Federal Child Care Tax Credit, you may qualify for a refundable state tax credit. The Arkansas Early Childhood Tax Credit differs from the Federal Child Care Tax Credit, because it is refundable. If your credit is more than the taxes you owe, you will get a refund.
