BILL NUMBER:S3744

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to a child care
tax credit

PURPOSE: Establishes a child care tax credit for the purposes of alle-
viating child care expenses that coexist with raising a child or chil-
dren.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Amends section 606 of the tax law by adding a new subsection.

Section 2: Specifies effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

This is essential in assisting low income or under-employed families
that pay for child care. The child care credit will allow for parents or
guardians to claim up to twenty-five percent of the expenses paid toward
caring for their child up to nineteen years of age. Having this credit
will allow those parents or guardians to continue in or seek gainful
employment, and to have the additional option to attend school on either
a part-time or full-time basis due to the financial incentives gained
from the proposed child care credit.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2011-2012: S. 4087A - Referred to Investigations and Government Oper-
ations.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Shall take effect on or after January 1, 2014.
