Help is finally on the way for Oklahoma caregivers and the parents, spouses, and other loved ones they care for with a tax credit provided by the Caring for Caregivers Act.

The Caring for Caregivers tax credit is for out-of-pocket costs incurred by the unpaid family caregiver for a limited set of services. The expenses must be directly related to assisting the family caregiver in providing care to an eligible family member.

The Caring for Caregivers Act passed during the 2023 Oklahoma legislative session and will take effect Jan. 1, 2024. The tax credit will be eligible for the 2024 tax year. Oklahoma is the first state in the nation to adopt an expansive tax credit for family caregivers.
