Understanding the Reach of the California Earned Income Tax Credit

Virtual Event

December 5, 2023 · 11:00 am - 11:30 am

About the Program

State-designed and -funded tax credits for low-income families are a small but growing part of California’s anti-poverty portfolio. As policymakers explore ways to refine the CalEITC, they could benefit from knowing more about where and when the credit is claimed. PPIC researcher Tess Thorman will talk about a new report that sheds light on the factors associated with CalEITC participation.

This event is supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle.
