Other tips for saving on au pair childcare

Au pairs are considered eligible expenses under the dependent Flex Spending Account (FSA) so ask your employer if they offer a dependent care FSA option. Additionally, you may be able to take advantage of the dependent care tax credit. See Child and dependent care information for more information.
