Full Answer

In order to take the credit, parents must be working or a full-time student. The total credit depends on family income, and the percentages are subject to change by the IRS. Families earning less than $15,000 per year can get up to 35 percent of eligible expenses. The percentage decreases based on income, but the low end is 20 percent for families earning $43,000 or more.
