Can I claim the child and dependent care tax credit using my child & elderly care FSA expenses?
Employees who sign up for a Child & Elderly Care FSA can use those expenses to claim the child and dependent care tax credit. However, in order to claim this credit, employees and their spouses who are filing jointly must have earned income, unless the spouse is actively looking for work, a full-time student, or disabled.
Zenefits does not provide tax advice. For more information about claiming child and dependent care tax credits, please see this IRS page.
