Steve Holt, author of the 2008 Brookings paper, “Beyond the Lump Sum: Periodic Payment of the Earned Income Tax Credit,” is revisiting the paper’s original periodic payment proposal in light of several significant recent developments. The recently released “Periodic Payment of the Earned Income Tax Credit Revisited” addresses the following questions:
- What is the demand for periodic payment alternatives?
- What benefits will accrue from the availability of periodic payment?
- What risks are associated with periodic payment and how can they be managed?
- What is the administrative feasibility of periodic payment?
To learn more about Holt’s paper and the recent proposals and pilot projects exploring alternative payment models, please join the EITC Funders Network and the Asset Funders Network on January 14th, 2016 for an informative webinar: Exploring Alternative EITC Models: Implications for Families, Community Organizations, and Funders.
