Is Summer Camp Tax Deductible?

Summer’s here! For some Americans that can present a problem if you have children because they are no longer in school and you have to work! Oh what to do, what to do?! Why don’t you send your child to summer camp? They will enjoy fun activities and you might be eligible for a deduction on your tax return.

Summer day camp can be used as a deduction for the child and dependent care credit. You can even enroll your child in camps that specialize in a particular activity, such as computers or soccer. Enroll your child today and you can relax knowing that he or she is safe and having fun during the summer.

In order for you to take the child and dependent care credit, the camp expenses must allow you to work or look for work. If your married, generally you and your spouse must work or look for work. Your spouse is treated as working during any month he or she is a full time student or is not physically or mentally able to care for himself or herself.

Summer day camp can be exciting for your child and it might save you some money on your tax return. Look into enrolling your child in a participating summer day camp and get yourself a possible tax deduction.
