Georgia Work Credit
Georgia Work Credit Is a Needed Boost for Working Families
Georgia is missing out on a time-tested tool that helps hardworking families, boosts small businesses and strengthens local economies. Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia give a critical boost to families that work but struggle to make ends meet through state policies based on the federal Earned Income Tax Credit or EITC.
These work credits provide a bottom-up tax cut to people earning low wages such as sales clerks, nurses, teaching assistants and construction workers. The added funds help families with kids afford basic necessities like child care and nutritious food, as well as larger investments that smooth the path to the middle class like a reliable car to get to work. More than a million Georgia families in communities throughout the state stand to gain from a Georgia Work Credit. Your support is critical to enacting this policy to strengthen working families across the state. Learn more at GeorgiaWorkCredit.org.
