Michigan Governor Proposes $5,000 Tax Credit to Support Family Caregivers

Governor Whitmer’s Proposal Aims to Ease Financial Burdens for Family Caregivers in Michigan

In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer has suggested a plan to help families through caregiver tax credits who take care of elderly or disabled relatives. She wants to give them a $5,000 tax credit. This means they could get some money back from their taxes to help with caregiving expenses. Taking care of someone can be really expensive.  Sometimes caregivers have to quit their jobs or take time off which can cost them money too. That Is why some states, like Michigan are thinking about giving caregiver tax credits to help pay for things like counseling, transportation or someone to come and help so the caregiver can take a break.
