This Child tax care funds will help eligible taxpayers fight inflation.

Governor Tom Wolf said that over 200,000 Pennsylvania families could earn up to $630 in child care tax credits.

As inflation keeps growing, food, petrol, and other essential needs for families throughout the state also increase.

Pennsylvania child TAX care credit

This Pennsylvania strategy helps the working poor who pay for childcare and qualify for federal aid. 

This credit will be available in 2023. 

A family must earn less than $43,000 to receive $315 for one child or $630 for two or more.

Families earning beyond $43,000 can claim $180 for one kid and $360 for two or more children.

Pennsylvania Senate voted for this budget earlier this month.

The benefits of this child tax credit program will be made available to more than 200,000 families.

"Price should never be an obstacle for parents seeking a school, safe, loving, and exciting environment for the child," said Governor Wolf.

Pennsylvania's child care credit is around 30% of federally approved expenses.
