Representatives Pettersen and Exum, co-prime sponsors, presented House Bill 17-1002, which extends the existing tax credit for child care expenses made by low-income taxpayers for tax years 2017, 2018, and 2019. The tax credit is limited to qualifying taxpayers with a federal adjusted gross income of less than $25,000.
