This is a means-tested credit that is based on a percentage of child care expenses (up to $6,000, or $3,000 if there is just one dependent) that are related to the taxpayer having a job. The credit would not be "refundable" (meaning the taxpayer would not get a check from the state for the amount the credit exceeded their income tax liability). Official Text and Analysis.
