Do I qualify for the Working Family Credit?

This refundable credit is available to low-income working families with qualifying child care expenses. To qualify, ALL of the following must be true:
  • You had at least $8,500 of earned income, and
  • You had $3,350 or less of investment income (such as interest, dividends, and capital gains), and
  • Your adjusted gross income was less than the limits for your household size. These limits can be found on the 2014 Oregon Working Family Child Care Credit Tables .
  • You paid qualifying child care expenses to allow you (and your spouse, if married) to work or attend school at least part time, or you or your spouse are exempt from this requirement due to a qualifying disability, and
  • You paid qualifying child care expenses for your qualifying child. A qualifying child is your child, step child, grandchild, step grandchild, brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, nephew, niece, step nephew, step niece, or eligible foster child who:
    • Lived with you at least half of the year, and
    • Was under the age of 13 at the time the care was provided, or
    • Was a child who qualifies for the additional exemption credit for a child with a disability, and
  • Your child care provider was not the child's parent, guardian, or your relative or step relative under the age 19.

Note: If you're married filing separately, you must be legally separated or permanently living apart on December 31, 2014, to qualify.
