New research from the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities offers an analysis of how the EITC and Child Tax Credits (CTC) help keep military families (both current and formerly active members of the armed services) out of poverty. Based on analysis of IRS and Census data, almost one fourth of all military families with children receive either the EITC or the low-income component of the Child Tax Credit. Military families make up 6.1% of all families receiving these credits. This article provides state-by-state totals of the number of military families receiving either the ETIC or CTC.
