"Hello, I’m Tammy from Turbo Tax, with important news for taxpayers who care for a disabled dependent. Taking care of a loved one with a disability can sometimes feel like a full-time job. But if you ever need to hire someone to assist you, you may be able to take the child and dependent care credit on your federal tax return this year. The credit for child and dependent care expenses can save you a significant amount of money because the credit reduces your tax bill on a dollar-for-dollar basis. However, in order to take advantage of this tax benefit, there are a number of requirements you need to satisfy first. Before evaluating anything else, you should assess whether you can satisfy the earned income requirement. Regardless of the expenses you incur to take care of your dependent, you must have earned income— meaning that you earn it from providing services as an employee or through self- employment. It’s ok if you have unearned income, such as interest and dividends, just as long as you report some earned income on your tax return. And if you are married, you must file a joint return and your spouse must also have earned income in order to take the credit. Your reason for hiring someone to care for your loved one must be so that you, and your spouse if you are married filing jointly, could work or look for work. But if you have a household employee, who in addition to caring for your dependent is also responsible for cooking and cleaning your home, you can include the expense of their salary in the credit calculation—provided their services are at least partly for the well being of your dependent. And remember, if you plan on taking the credit, you must prepare your tax return on Form 1040 or 1040A and attach Form 2441 to it. When you file with TurboTax,0we’ll ask you simple questions about your income and dependents, and we’ll fill in all the right forms for you.

Cuidar a un ser querido con una discapacidad puede sentirse a veces como un trabajo de tiempo completo. Pero si alguna vez tienes que contratar a alguien para ayudarte, podrías ser capaz de tomar el crédito para cuidado de niños y dependientes en tu declaración federal de impuestos este año. El crédito para gastos de cuidado de niños y dependientes puede ahorrarte un monto significante de dinero porque el crédito reduce tu cuenta de impuestos en una base de dólar por dólar. Sin embargo, para tomar ventaja de este beneficio fiscal, hay una serie de requisitos que primero debes satisfacer. Antes de evaluar cualquier otra cosa, deberías valorar si puedes satisfacer el requisito de ingresos ganados. Independientemente de los gastos en que incurres al cuidar a tu dependiente, tú debes tener ingresos ganados, lo que significa que los obtienes por prestación de servicios como empleado o a través de auto empleo. Está bien si tienes ingresos no ganados, tales como intereses y dividendos, con tal de que informes algún ingreso ganado en tu declaración de impuestos. Y si estás casado, debes presentar una declaración de impuestos conjunta y tu pareja también debe tener ingresos ganados para poder tomar el crédito. Tu razón para contratar a alguien que cuide a tu ser querido debe ser para que tú y tu pareja si es que están casados y presentaron su declaración conjunta, puedan trabajar o buscar trabajo. Pero si tienes un empleado doméstico, quien además de cuidar a tu dependiente es también responsable de cocinar y limpiar tu hogar, puedes incluir el gasto de su salario en el cálculo de crédito proporcionado por sus servicios por lo menos en parte, por el bienestar de tu dependiente. Y recuerda, si planeas tomar el crédito, debes preparar tu declaración de impuesto en el formulario 1040 o 1040A y agregar Formulario 2441 para ello. Cuando presentas con TurboTax, te haremos preguntas simples acerca de tus ingresos y dependientes, y completaremos los formularios adecuados para ti.
