  • Analysis from the Brookings Institution showed that under both the President’s proposal and proposals currently in Congress to expand the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for workers without custodial children, millions of workers would receive a strengthened credit, at least 15 states would double the number of filers eligible for the childless worker credit and every major metro area would see thousands of workers benefit from an expanded EITC. (The Brookings Institution, The Washington PostTax Credits for Working Families)
  • Jason Furman, Chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisors, used comparisons between the official and supplemental poverty measures to show how much tax credits like the federal EITC and Child Tax Credit have done to reduce poverty and argue that they should be expanded again.

  • Momentum behind a federal EITC expansion grew immensely Tuesday night after President Obama called for a strengthened credit for childless workers in his State of the Union Address, driving advocates to reaffirm their approval for an increased credit and drawing fresh attention from top media outlets. Leading up to the President’s proposal, we launched a new series of research and updates on an expansion of the federal credit. While the president referred only to single workers, creating some confusion among commentators, the White House clarified, when questioned by Lauren Pescatore of Tax Credits for Working Families, that the proposal covers all childless workers.

Here are some highlights from the past two weeks’ news on family tax credit issues. Remember – you can also track news coverage throughout the week by visiting our RSS feed, where you can filter news by a specific credit and/or state.

  • The Census Bureau’s recently released Supplemental Poverty Measure revealed that refundable tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit proved the second most effective government benefit, behind Social Security, in keeping Americans out of poverty in 2012. The EITC alone kept 6.1 million people, including 3.1 million children out of poverty. (CNN Money, Census Bureau , Center on Budget and Policy Priorities)
  • Similarly, a study from UC Berkeley showed how food assistance and tax breaks like the EITC have a substantial impact on persistent poverty. (San Jose Mercury News)
  • James Pethokoukis of the National Review Online argued that 2016 Republican presidential candidates should embrace Senator Lee’s proposal to increase the federal Child Tax Credit. (American Enterprise Institute)
  • In honor of Veterans Day, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities highlighted programs like the EITC and Child Tax Credit that help many low-income veterans — and active-duty members of the military — make ends meet. (Center on Budget and Policy Priorities)
  • Instant Tax Service (“ITS”), the fourth-largest tax preparation business in the United States, has been ordered by a federal court judge to shut down its operations in part because of its widespread practice of fraudulently maximizing EITC claims. The IRS is also issuing letters to a number of tax practitioners suspected of filing inaccurate EITC claims throughout November and December to warn them of the consequences associated with filing inaccurate claims for the EITC. (Forbes, Accounting Today)
  • Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel proposed a budget for 2014 that includes an EITC pilot program for 500 working families that will issue the credit in advanced quarterly payments, providing an option for families who need money before tax season to make ends meet. (The Chicago Citizen)
  • Concerns have risen that Vermont Gov. Shumlin may renew his plan to increase funding for early childhood education by cutting back on the state’s EITC. Vermont‘s Public Assets Institute examined which anti-poverty efforts have been successful in the state over the past few years, concluding that programs like Vermont’s EITC have helped struggling working families get back on their feet, while tax incentives aimed to encourage job creation have had far less of an impact on preventing poverty.

Here are some highlights from this week’s news on family tax credit issues. Remember – you can also track news coverage throughout the week by visiting our RSS feed, where you can filter news by a specific credit and/or state.

  • A Kentucky Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) set at 15 percent of the federal credit could be part of an overall tax reform package considered during a special session that may convene this year, according to a recent statement by Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson. A 15 percent state EITC was recommended by the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform in December 2012. “We have presented it to the governor and we are hopeful that over the next year there will be some movement where the legislature will support some type of state tax credit that would match with the federal earned income tax credit,” Abramson said. (The Courier-Journal)

  • New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie conditionally vetoed a bill Monday to increase the state’s minimum wage by $1.25 an hour, countering with a scaled-back plan to implement a smaller increase while providing direct relief to struggling working families through an increase to the state’s EITC from 20 percent to 25 percent of the federal credit. “To make certain that New Jersey’s working families are on the strongest economic footing possible to continue their economic progress, today I am also proposing that the benefit amounts provided under the New Jersey Earned Income Tax Credit program be increased by 25 percent,” said Governor Christie. “My plan will give workers the additional income and relief that will spur consumer spending and help grow strong, sound families.” (In 2010, his first year in office, Christie proposed, and the legislature approved, a reduction of the EITC from 25 to 20 percent. Christie has since used the EITC as a bargaining chip for his tax cut plan, line-item vetoing legislation in 2011 and 2012 that would have restored the EITC.) A two-thirds majority in both houses is needed to override the veto, but reports suggest that the Democratic legislature wouldn’t act on the bill and instead would go another route: pass a bill that would put the minimum wage issue to voters in November.

  • The New Jersey state Assembly adopted a bill to increase the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) from 20 percent to 25 percent of the federal credit Monday after a 48-31 vote. The state Senate has not yet voted on the bill. If the bill passes, the average tax credit will jump from $430 to $545 per year for more than 500,000 New Jersey taxpayers. The state credit was 25 percent before it was cut two years ago. (Fox NY)
  • Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration announced that because the budget did not include funding for the state Circuit Breaker program for FY 2013, beginning July 1, the state Circuit Breaker property tax program would not be available to as many as 120,000 low-income seniors. Illinois created  the Circuit Breaker program in 1972 to help senior citizens and people with disabilities if their rent or property tax bills were too large a share of their income. (Note: the law remains on the books should funding become available in future years.) (Sun Times, KFVS 12)

  • “The era of the tax advance is over,” The Washington Post declared this week. Refund anticipation loans have long preyed on low-income filers, often those claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit, by offering them an advance on their refund, coupled with punishing interest. Only one bank is still providing the loans, and will stop after this tax season. (Washington Post)

  • Tax day is only a few days away – check out a few articles on the importance of filing for the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit and Additional Child Tax Credit, and Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit. (CNN, Detroit Free Press, EGP News)

2012 State Legislative Preview

March 1st, 2012

In 2012, nearly half the states are considering changes to at least one of these four tax credits for working families.

Threats: Most worrisome are the proposals in Kansas and Oklahoma. In Kansas, Governor Sam Brownback proposed eliminating the EITC and child and dependent care credit as part of a major tax system revision to reduce the income tax and cut taxes for businesses. However, rather than eliminating the EITC entirely, the House Tax Committee passed a bill that would cut the EITC in half and make it non-refundable. Oklahoma is also facing a serious effort to eliminate the EITC, child tax credit, child and dependent care credit, and property tax circuit breaker, as Governor Mary Fallin and the legislature consider a number of different proposals to reduce or eliminate the state income tax system in favor of a sales tax system.
