Vermont Child Care Contribution Tax 

Effective 7/1/24, Vermont employees will have an additional payroll income tax for child care contributions. According to Act 76 of 2023, related to child care and early childhood education, the Department of Taxes will implement and administer a new Child Care Contribution (CCC). Vermont employers will be required to pay a 0.44% payroll tax on all employee wages earned, and employers may deduct and withhold a maximum of 25% of the required contribution (i.e., 0.11%) from employee wages. This tax will be used to fund investments in Vermont's child care system.
