Child Care Expenses

Can I claim the costs of sending my child to a overnight camp as a credit or deduction?


No. The costs of sending a child to a overnight camp cannot be claimed as a child care credit or deduction. Costs for day camp, nursery school, day-care center, or home babysitter for a child under age 13 can be used for a child care credit when both spouses on a joint return earn income or on a single or Head of Household return the taxpayer has earned income.
