Update: Michigan Lawmakers Still Considering Cuts That Would Affect 1 Million Kids
Lawmakers in Lansing are still in negotiations, and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) -- a 6 percent tax credit that helps more than 800,000 low-income, working families and an estimated one million kids -- is still in consideration. Visit the Save the EITC website and read more on this issue here.
Common Sense Kids Action has joined the Michigan League of Public Policy to encourage lawmakers in Lansing to preserve the estimated $117 million that could be lost by Michigan families. We recently celebrated the creation of a California EITC, signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown in June. We believe Michigan's families deserve the same access to this tax credit and will continue to work with partners and lawmakers to protect the Michigan EITC.
