Dependent Care FSA

McClatchy realizes that for many people, the cost of day care, nursery school, or supervision for an aging parent is a significant monthly expense. This is why we offer a dependent care flexible spending account.

A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA) allows you to use pre-tax dollars to pay for certain care expenses for qualifying dependents—children under age 13, a disabled spouse, or legally dependent parents.

Anyone regardless of their medical plan selection may take advantage of the DCFSA.

Plan Information

How can you lower your taxable income this year with your Dependent Care FSA?

Contributions to your FSAs are tax-deductible, and the funds are tax-free when used for qualified expenses. For example, if you contribute $2,000 annually to your FSA and your base salary is $60,000- you will only be taxed on $58,000 of gross income (note, this example is only considering the FSA component of taxes).
