Daycare Tax Credit for Deployed Military Families Endorsed by OK State House

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK– Legislation authorizing a state income tax credit for daycare expenses of deployed military personnel has passed in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

House Bill 1312 would authorize a tax credit for daycare expenditures on a qualifying dependent child during any period when a member of the armed services is deployed “to another location in support of combat, contingency operation, or natural disaster” for 30 or more consecutive days, during which time the service member is unable to be accompanied by his/her family at government expense.

The legislation applies to dependent children 12 or younger at the time the daycare expenses were paid, and permissible expenses would be limited to the care of a child “for not more than 12 hours per day.”

“Servicemember” is defined as a member of the Armed Forces of the United States, the Reserve Corps of the nation’s Armed Forces, or the Oklahoma National Guard.

The bill will now go to the senate for consideration.
