Group Pushing Earned Income Tax Credit for W.Va.

Williamson Daily News, Coal Valley News - The state Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) could help West Virginians who work but struggle to get by on low wages, according to Seth DiStefano, Campaign Coordinator for the EITC supporters. This would be similar to the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit that is already in effect. Read

The group, which has been endorsed by several organizations across the state, says the EITC would also help with reducing poverty, increasing tax fairness, and boosting local economies across the state.

"Right now we have 39 organizations who have endorsed the campaign to bring a refundable state income tax credit to W.Va.," DiStefano said.
