Child care tax credit scams possible

Millions of dollars in federal childcare tax credits will soon be flowing out across the country, and the scammers won’t be far behind.

Jessie Schmidt with the Better Business Bureau of South Dakota said all the federal payouts have attracted the scams.

Schmidt said people will get the childcare payments the same way they got earlier stimulus dollars.

Schmidt said younger families, who will get these payments, aren’t normally targeted by scammers.

Schmidt said people who have questions or concerns about the payments can check for more information on the I-R-S’s website.
