Try and remember that summer say camp costs qualify for the dependent care credit. So if you send your school-age child to math camp or any other special say camps this summer, such as those for computers, theater or soccer, don’t forget the write-off. The same goes for camps that focus on improving reading, writing or study skills. But the costs of summer school and tutoring programs aren’t eligible for the credit. They are treated as education, not care. The other rulers for the credit aren’t affected. The child must be under 13, and expenses must be incurred so the parents can work.
