Bipartisan Bill to Give Caregivers a $5k Tax Credit Introduced

On January 31, Members of Congress reintroduced a bipartisan bill, the Credit for Caring Act, S. 3702 and H.R. 7165, which would provide a federal tax credit of up to $5,000 to eligible working family caregivers. Led by Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), along with Representatives Linda Sanchez (D-CA) and Mike Carey (R-OH), the bill would help offset a portion of the cost of caregiving expenses such as home care aides, assistive technology, respite care, transportation or other supports that help caregivers and their loved ones. USAging has endorsed this bill in the past and will continue to support it as part of our broader efforts to advocate for family caregivers.
