Question
Can I claim a Child Care Credit on my Delaware return?

Answer

Child Care Credit

A resident individual is allowed a credit against his/her individual tax in the amount of fifty percent (50%) of the child and dependent care credit allowable for federal income tax purposes. Use the worksheet provided below to compute the amount of the deduction. The Child Care Credit should not be confused with the Child Tax Credit, which is not an allowable credit on the Delaware return.

In the case of spouses who file a joint federal return, but who elect to file separate or combined separate returns for Delaware, the credit may only be applied against the tax imposed on the spouse with the lower taxable income reported on Line 5.

NOTE: You must attach a copy of Federal Form 2441 to your Delaware return.
