Employer-Provided Child Tax Credit: Estimated claims and factors limiting wider use


Established in 2001, the Employer-Provided Child Care Credit can provide a tax incentive for employers to provide child care benefits. House Committee Report 116-456 included a provision for GAO to review the credit. For this report, GAO examines (1) the tax implications for employer-provided child care for employers and employees, (2) the numbers and common characteristics of employers claiming the credit, and the amounts of child care expenses claimed, (3) reported challenges employers face in using the tax credit and how these challenges can be addressed, and (4) reported benefits employees receive from child care services eligible for the credit.
