38,000 Alabama military families benefit from working-family tax credits

About 38,000 Alabama families with current or former members of the armed forces benefit from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the low-income component of the Child Tax Credit, according to a new report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP). The credits improve economic security for these families and help boost their children's school performance and future job prospects.

"Our service members and veterans have answered the call of duty, and it's our duty to make sure they can provide for their families back home," ACPP executive director Kimble Forrister said. "Through worker credits like the EITC and the Child Tax Credit we can help young families make ends meet."
