Act Now

November 2010

When Congress returns after the elections, the expiration of major tax cuts will top the agenda, including the EITC and Child Tax Credit improvements.

Ask your member of Congress to make permanent the current EITC and Child Tax Credit benefit levels.

If Congress fails to extend the current EITC and Child Tax Credit benefit levels:

  • Over 1.5 million people, including almost 900,000 children, will fall into poverty.
  • A full-time minimum-wage parent with two kids will lose nearly $1500 in her Child Tax Credit.
