Children’s Art Tax Credit


December 28th, 2011

New for 2011, you may be able to claim the Children’s Arts Tax Credit.  Your child needs to be under the age of 16 at some point during the year (or 18 if disabled.)

Qualifying activities can include a wide variety of things, including activities that:

  • contributes to the development of creative skills or expertise in artistic or cultural activities;
  • provides a substantial focus on wilderness and the natural environment;
  • helps children develop and use particular intellectual skills;
  • includes structured interaction among children where supervisors teach or help children develop interpersonal skills; or
  • provides enrichment or tutoring in academic subjects.

That covers a huge range of activities.  If your child is more into sports, remember you may be able to claim the Fitness Tax Credit.
