Act Now

This article originally appeared in the February - March 2010 Newsletter.

Urge your members of Congress to protect and strengthen key tax credits that can make a big difference for low-income workers and their families.

Points to make:

  • The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) alone lifts more than 5 million Americans annually above the poverty line, including 2.6 million children.
  • The EITC, the Child Tax Credit, and other measures are effective, but more must be done. In 2008, nearly one in four children lived in a family struggling to put food on the table.
