HARRISBURG – Rep. Joe Hogan (R- Bucks), announced last week the House passed a bipartisan bill that would incrementally increase the childcare tax credit, first passed in 2022. “As childcare costs continue to increase, we must do all we can to support working families,” Hogan said. “By having the child tax credit increase incrementally each year, the credit matches with increasing costs each year and will continue to help working families save money.” House Bill 1259, as amended, would build off the childcare tax credit that was passed as part of Pennsylvania’s 2022 budget, by increasing the credit incrementally, it ensures the credit keeps up with rising costs over time and keeps people at work. House Bill 1259 now goes to the Senate for consideration.
