Child-Related Tax Credits

January 26, 2023

The 2022 tax season is upon us, and we wanted to provide you with information available through the Vermont Department of Taxes about child-related tax credits.

Available credits include:

  • Vermont Child Tax Credit: Provides financial support to full and part-year resident Vermont families with young children.
  • Vermont Child and Dependent Care Credit: Tax relief to full- and part-year Vermont residents who earn income and pay dependent care expenses.
    • Please Note: Federal law prohibits disclosure by the Child Development Division of private information such as social security numbers (SSN) and employer identification numbers (EIN). For information about obtaining your child care provider's SSN or EIN, please visit the IRS's website.
  • Vermont Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC): This is a benefit for working people with low to moderate incomes.
