Childcare Tax Credit
Colorado leads the nation in providing tax-advantaged tools for child care through the Child Care Contribution Tax Credit (CCTC). This unique public / private partnership allows individuals and businesses to claim a 50% state income tax credit for qualified contributions to child care providers (up to $200,000). CCTC contributions are used to: establish and operate licensed child care facilities; fund grant programs (scholarships) for parents who need help paying for care; and, supplement professional development costs for individuals working in the child care sector.
