Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Do you have a flexible spending account that you would like to contribute to pre-tax?
this is from an fsa account can you use those funds for dependant care after age 5 a nd receive tax credits
Yes, you can use the FSA to pay day care for your dependent even after age 5. Please note that the payment has to be for extended day care and not for the tuition fees for Kindergarten or higher grade in any private or public school/institution. If the money is used from FSA than since this pre tax you cannot claim dependent credit on the same amounts.
Let me know if you have any question.
