Earned Income Tax Credit May Have New Life

The Michigan Senate Chamber
The Michigan Senate Chamber

LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Rick Snyder may give new life to the Earned Income Tax Credit as the republican leadership struggles to find enough votes to pass the budget in the upper chamber.

The assistance for low-income working families has reappeared in Senate negotiations, although at less than a third of its current level.  The credit will be lowered to six-percent, and will be paid for by dropping a proposed 25-dollar-per-child tax credit and a special Homestead Property Tax exemption for the working poor. 

The current EITC credit is about 432-dollars for a qualifying family, but if approved, will drop to an average of just under 140-dollars.
