A Video Guide to Filing a Childcare Facility Property Tax Exemption

Here’s how childcare providers can benefit from Dallas’ recently passed tax relief ordinance.

April 1, 2024

The City of Dallas and Dallas County recently approved a 100% tax break for childcare facilities serving low-income families—a move that will make childcare more affordable for North Texans and help advance our mission to improve access to education, income and health.

At United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, we want to encourage every eligible childcare owner to apply for this tax break if your municipality has approved it. We’ve produced a helpful instructional video in partnership with the North Texas Early Education Alliance to guide you through the application process.
