The Faculty/Staff Dependent Care Account
This allows you to save money for child care expenses on a tax-free basis. You may designate a monthly payroll deduction, which is deposited to your spending account. Throughout the year, as you spend out-of-pocket money for eligible dependent care expenses, you submit claims along with your receipts. The spending account administrator will reimburse you from the tax-free money you have set aside in your account. If you use this program, your use of the federal and Oregon child care tax credits will be limited. In general, if your adjusted gross income (including that of your partner, if any) is expected to be more than $25,000, most likely you will be better off receiving reimbursements under the spending account. Contact the Employee Benefits Office, 541-737-2806, 122B Kerr Administration Building, for further information.
