How Does The Baby Affect Taxes?

Posted by theboat On June 19, 2016 1 comment

Did we get massive tax savings for having a baby?
Not really...

The only things we qualified for when filing our 2015 taxes were:

  • an additional $4000 exemption. Coming out of the 25% bracket, that saved us $1000
  • Child Tax Credit of $150
Thus...we got a total of $1150 in tax savings.

For 2016, we will get a bit more. Since he is in daycare, we will get some level of deduction from a combination of an FSA and the Child and Dependent Care Credit. I haven't run the numbers to see the exact amount yet.
