Tax & Budget

Intro Image

While the wealthiest Americans and corporations have benefited from tax cuts and loopholes for years, programs for women and families have been cut. A fair, progressive tax system could raise revenue to expand opportunity for all.


Child Care Tax Strategies

Paying for child care can be a major burden for many families. But federal and state tax credits can help some working parents offset their child care expenses.

Family Tax Credits

Family tax credits, which are designed to help low-wage workers boost their earnings and meet their expenses, can make a huge difference in the lives of women and families.

Federal Budget

The federal budget sets our nation’s priorities ― and it’s always a battle to make sure programs for women and families aren’t shortchanged.

Federal Tax Policy

The tax system can finance needed investments and reduce inequality — if tax credits for working families are protected and strengthened and the wealthy and corporations are required to pay their fair share of taxes.

Tax Credits Outreach

Many working women and families are eligible for family tax credits that can help them make ends meet ― but only if they claim them on their tax returns.
