Give credit to West Virginia\\\'s working families by supporting a State Earned Income Tax Credit!
Many of West Virginia\\\'s working families need assistance to pay for their basic needs. Replacing the Family Tax Credit (FTC) with a refundable state Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) at 10 percent of the federal credit would provide greater benefit to more families. An estimated 151,000 families would qualify for a state EITC, nearly twice as many as receive the FTC.
Refunds are spent on everyday purchases as well as on rent, home repair, mortgages, or debt. The additional dollars from a state EITC would be a boost for families and the local economies where they live. A state EITC could bring in an additional $25 million dollars to West Virginia.
