Refundable Tax Credits

The tax code is one of the most effective ways to address the economic needs of low-income families and individuals. NETWORK believes that a just tax system includes refundable credits for low-income workers and their families. These tax credits can provide essential income assistance to working families and are a proven mechanism to alleviate poverty.
