As part of its continued support for the Credit for Caring Act, ANCOR joined 59 other national organizations in a letter asking all members of Congress to co-sponsor the legislation.

As explained in the letter: “The Credit for Caring Act would create a new, non-refundable federal tax credit of up to $5,000 for eligible working family caregivers to help address the financial challenges of caregiving. Eligible working family caregivers caring for loved ones of all ages could receive the credit if the care recipient meets certain functional or cognitive limitations or other requirements. This tax credit would help family caregivers who care for non-dependents or who do not live with the person they are assisting. The Credit for Caring Act is an important step for Congress to show their support for family caregivers and we ask for your support by co-sponsoring H.R. 3221.”
