Dave Lindstrom on Families & Children

 

 


Raise cap for tax free accounts for dependent care

The family unit is among the most important institutions that we, as a society, should seek to support. Paid Family Leave provides much-needed security for families and impacts every Kansan. Whether young or old, all levels of society can feel the impact, including demands placed on parents, grandparents and other guardians and caregivers. Our society is made stronger when our families are stronger. I stand with Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump on calling for Paid Family Leave.

One way we can bring relief to families and help employers find top talent is to increase the Flexible Spending Accounts cap for Dependent Care. This allows families to set aside part of their paycheck tax-free to pay for daycare. Right now, annual Dependent Care contributions are capped at $5,000 dollars per family, regardless of the number of children that need care. That doesn't even cover half of the average cost for one child.
