There’s also a potential financial benefit. Employers with qualifying expenditures toward child care facilities, resources or referrals for the benefit of their employees may be eligible to claim the Credit for Employer-Provided Child Care Facilities and Services, which falls under the provisions of general business credit.

The credit is limited to $150,000 per tax year. You can claim the credit at any time within three years from the due date of your return.
