Federal EITC Expansion: What Did The President Propose?
On March 3, President Obama released the details of his EITC proposal. On March 5 Tax Credits for Working Families held a webinar on the details of the President’s proposal, its prospects on Capitol Hill and its potential impact on low-income workers.

Highlights from this week include a bill from Rep. Cory Gardner to reduce improper EITC payments and use the savings to expand the credit, a new White House report showing that the American labor force has been declining for more than a decade and identifying the EITC as a successful policy tool to help encourage work and broaden the labor force moving forward, and the full House considering the Child Tax Credit Improvement Act of 2014.
Today marks the launch of our new commentary series, Ideas From The Right: Conservative Approaches to Tax Credits for Working Families. This series is designed to highlight new proposals from conservative policymakers and thought leaders on how to improve tax credits for working families like the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit. Ideas From The Right seeks to draw attention to the growing support for these credits at both the federal and state level while sparking discussion on the merits of different approaches and opportunities for consensus among conservatives and progressives.
