New York Contemplates $500M Tax Credit Initiative to Aid Struggling Families and Stimulate Economic Growth

New York leaders are considering a way to support families facing money troubles. They’re looking at giving $500M tax credits to help these families especially those with lower or medium incomes. The idea is to improve the Working Families Tax Credit. If this plan goes through families might receive up to $550 for each child. But this won’t happen all at once. It’s expected to take five years for everyone to start getting it.

Senator Andrew Gounardes believes this idea could make a big difference for families. It could help cover important things like food, clothing and bills. Another group, the Strong Economy for All Coalition thinks it could also boost the state’s economy by adding an extra billion dollars in spending.
