What is the Child and Dependent Care Credit?

The California Child and Dependent Care Credit is a nonrefundable tax credit that is computed as a percentage of the federal Child and Dependent Care Credit.

The credit is allowed for certain household and dependent care expenses you incurred during the year that allowed you to seek or maintain gainful employment. Only expenses incurred for care actually performed in California qualify for this credit.
