Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts
Use tax-free money to pay for some of your expenses
The flexible spending account (FSA) program provides a way for you to use tax-free money to pay for some of your expenses. Purdue offers a dependent care FSA. When you choose to participate, you elect to have salary deducted from your paycheck, before it is taxed, and directed to your dependent care flexible spending account. This untaxed money is then available to reimburse you for eligible dependent day care services you receive during the calendar year.
