What’s at Stake Today
Refundable tax credits boost family incomes, reduce poverty, and improve health, educational, and future employment outcomes for children. Expanding refundable tax credits would help stabilize families and the economy overall during the recession. This would especially benefit women of color, who face even higher unemployment rates and whose incomes have plummeted since the pandemic struck.
What Is NWLC Doing?
We’re pushing to improve the EITC, especially for workers without qualifying children, and the CTC for families with low incomes. We’re advocating to make the CDCTC refundable so families with lower incomes can benefit. And we’re encouraging states to improve or enact their own family tax credits.
