On Tuesday, April 13th, more than 100 practitioners and advocates attended our inaugural convening — From Tax Complexity to Tax Equity — co-hosted with Prosperity Now.
It’s not too late to act!
Here are four actions you can take to advance tax equity today:
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program relies on federal funding to provide free tax prep services to low- and moderate-income families. Ensure that Congress funds the VITA program for fiscal year 2022.
The American Opportunity Accounts Act will ensure that every child has a fair shot at the American Dream by giving them “baby bonds” at birth, seeded with $1,000. Every year, children will receive up to $2,000 deposit, depending on family income.
A New York State legislation – NY Senate Bill S537 – will expand the Earned Income Tax Credit, including increasing credit amounts and enabling advanced access.
Join the conversation with Change Machine’s Community of Practice. Learn from peers in our community discussion forums and attend trainings on emerging issues. Free Community Licenses through June 30th!
