Support the Child Tax Credit!
In 1997, the Taxpayer Relief Act (championed by Republican lawmakers) created the Child Tax Credit. Over the years Congress has made significant changes to the tax credit, transforming it from a nonrefundable credit to a refundable credit available to low-income families with sufficient earned income.
In 2017, as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, President Trump expanded the child credit, doubling it from $1,000 to $2,000 per child. Further, the number of families who qualified for the credit was expanded to those families earning up to $400,000 if filing jointly, $200,000 for single filers making it one of the largest tax credits for working families.
The expanded tax credit expired at the end of 2021. The 2017 improvements expire in 2025.If Congress does not act, the credit will fall to just $1,000 per child.
The CTC should receive bipartisan support in Congress, this is something both parties should be able to agree on! We need your help to tell Congress to vote to extend and expand the Child Tax Credit which will support families and the United States' economy.
A strong Child Tax Credit protects families, promotes pro-life values, and gives parents freedom to raise their children in accordance with their own values. A Child Tax Credit could also help with the shocking
41-year low birth rate from last year. It also helps the economy! When families keep more of their hard-earned money,
they are more encouraged to start their own businesses or enter the workforce because they have more funds for childcare or transportation.
The Child Tax Credit carves out a pathway of possibility for all communities to grow and build their families. Please use our form to find and email your representative to act right away in support of the Child Tax Credit!
