Summer just got better!

Did you know the money you spend on your child's day camp may entitle you to the child and dependent care credit?

If you qualify to claim the federal child and dependent care credit, you're entitled to claim New York State's. But remember to keep documentation showing your expenses, such as receipts, copies of cashed checks, and bank statements, in case we ask for proof.

Sunshine, s'mores, and now this? What's not to love about summer?
