Working Families Tax Credit

 

The rising cost of living, coupled with stagnating incomes, means too many families cannot take part in the American promise: If you work hard, you can get ahead in our country. Today, nearly half of Americans don’t have enough cash on hand to cover a $400 unforeseen expense, with significantly worse rates among people of color.  Cash gives people the tools to solve their own problems and the Working Families Tax Credit is the beginning of the solution.
