It's never too early to start planning for 2017—especially if those plans include finding clever ways to save. One such bit of cleverness is setting aside tax-free funds from your FSA to pay for summer childcare (like summer camp, for example). And if you don't have an FSA, you may still be entitled to a dependent care credit to offset your summer care expenses.
Some caveats (income, your kids' ages) apply, but who knows? A little IRS research might just make 2017 a lot less taxing.
