2018 was a big year for tax credit advocacy on the state level: bills to enact or expand state EITCs moved forward in multiple states and five states successfully expanded their state EITCs and two states enacted new Child Tax Credits (CTC). On the federal level, 2017 tax reform’s effects, including changes to the CTC, continued to ripple through the economy as proposals to strengthen tax credits emerged. Looking ahead, tax credit proposals are already being introduced in state legislatures and federal advocates are looking beyond the shutdown to opportunities for expansion.
This webinar provided an overview of the current lay of the land and what’s to come in the realm of state and federal EITC advocacy efforts.
