Tax Benefits

Family caregivers in North Dakota can receive the following tax benefits for their work as a family caregiver.

The Child and Dependent Tax Credit

The Child and Dependent Tax Credit (CDCTC) is a percentage of an individual's earned income. An individual may receive the credit if he or she is caring for one or more dependents and has earned income below a certain amount. The costs must be for caring for a child or other dependent so that the taxpayer can work or look for a job. If they are not, the taxpayer will not be eligible. Learn more here

North Dakota Family Member Care Tax Credit 

This Tax Credit is a percentage of the taxpayer's earned income. The amount of credit is determined by eligible expenses incurred for caring for a family member. The caregiver can offset up to $4,000 in expenses with the credit, which is a percentage of income. Learn more about eligibility for the credit here
