Act now so critical, pro-work tax provisions don’t expire

Join us in calling on Congress to preserve federal tax credits that boost family income, support children’s development and lift millions of Americans out of poverty.

More than 240,000 Minnesota workers would lose out if Congress allows key parts of the federal Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to expire.

In coming months, Congress is likely to consider extending several business tax provisions. They should make working families a top priority in any tax legislation by making key provisions of the EITC and Child Tax Credit permanent. Congress should also expand the EITC for childless workers and noncustodial parents working at low wages, the only groups who are taxed deeper into poverty by the federal tax code.

Demonstrate your organization’s support for these credits by signing on to a letter to Minnesota’s U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken by Monday, September 28.
