Tax Credits in Montana
This workshop will be held virtually. Click here to join, no registration required.
The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) are among the largest pieces of the US social safety net. Economic research shows that the EITC has a larger impact on child poverty than any other social safety net program, raising nearly 5 million children out of poverty annually. Similarly, the expansion of the CTC has been estimated to reduce child poverty by 22%. The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 temporarily increased both the EITC and CTC, and Congress is currently considering making the expanded federal CTC permanent.
In this workshop, MSU experts will summarize current and proposed tax credits and share research on how tax credits have impacted Montana. The workshop will conclude with time for audience questions and discussion.
