Protect Tax Credits by Sharing Your Client Stories

VITA ClientNCTC needs your help with one of the most crucial components of our campaign to protect tax credits for working families!

As you may know, improvements in the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit are due to expire at the end of the year unless congressional action is taken.  Already, some in Congress are questioning the value of keeping these credits strong.  Thus, NCTC will be working over the summer and fall to build a strong case to protect these vital credits.

Stories from your VITA clients are the most important, concrete way we can educate policymakers how tax credits complement hard work and help people stay out of poverty.  Unfortunately, it has been hard to get a lot of those great stories.  And Congress needs to hear from your clients!

So please send us client stories that you have collected.  Any format is fine.  This year, we are particularly interested in highlighting stories from people who work as police, firefighters, members of the military or the clergy.  This will help show that people in many occupations are helped by tax credits, including occupations that most help to serve and protect the public.

Please send these to Gail Parson (gparson@tax-coalition.org) or Jennifer Thall (jthall@tax-coalition.org) as soon as possible, but no later than July 20th.
