In 2017 Arizona State Representative Heather Carter proposed HB 2209 “Family Caregiver Income Tax Credit” that would give up to $1,000 tax credit to those family caregivers who pay out of pocket expenses in the service of their loved ones.
AARP Wisconsin supports a pending bill in the Wisconsin State Legislature, called the Caregiver Tax Credit. The bill would create an income tax credit that reimburses family caregivers for 50% of their annual caregiving costs up to $1,000.
The Arizona Family Caregiver Tax Credit bill (HB 2209 sponsored by Representative Heather Carter LD 15) will give family caregivers a state income tax break. A mirror bill has also been filed in the state Senate by Senator Kate Brophy-McGee District 11. The goal of these bills is to help Arizona families with the thousands of dollars of out-of-pocket costs incurred in caring for loved ones. Over 800,000 Arizonans – a silent army of love – spend one or more hours a week taking care of an older family member, friend or neighbor.
AARP Maine is pleased to support a Caregiver Tax Credit, which would provide an income tax credit of up to $2,500 for eligible caregiver expenses for family caregivers earning less than $75,000 ($150,000 for a couple).
AARP has announced support for legislation to grant targeted tax credits to low- and middle-income Nebraskans who are caring for loved ones in their homes.
