Tax Fact Sheet Updated for 2016

As we ease into February, working caregivers will note that their W-2’s are arriving, and those that pay for childcare for the children in their care are seeing statements from daycare.  It’s tax time.  Here at the NYS Navigator, we provide information on the most common Child Tax Credits taken by caregivers – both federally and in New York State.  Please visit our legal fact sheet tax information page for information on these money saving credits, as well as a link to how to find Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites near you.  We at the NYS Navigator are happy to pass in new information as we receive it, however, keep in mind that all tax related questions should be run by your accountant for a final answer as we are not tax experts.
