Healthy Families EITC Coalition Submits a Letter on Tax Relief Implementation in Economic Development Bill Negotiations

On July 27, 2022, the Healthy Families EITC coalition, a statewide nonpartisan network of advocates working to improve the health and well-being of Massachusetts families through an expansion of the state Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), submitted a letter to the Conferees Representative Michlewitz, Cusack, and Soter and Senators Rodrigues, Lesser, and O’Connor. As they consider the reconciliation of House and Senate Economic Development bills, “An Act relating to economic growth and relief for the Commonwealth,” we urge them to include the Senate timing of tax relief implementation – retroactive to tax year 2022 – in the final version of this bill.
