With essential workers continuing to struggle, GSO calls for CalEITC increase in state budget
“This year, it is more important than ever for the state budget to reflect our values and help Californians in need. While the Governor’s call for a $600 stimulus payment to CalEITC recipients is the right thing to do, and should be done quickly, a one-time payment is not enough.
The budget should permanently increase the CalEITC refundable tax credit because meaningful and equitable financial recovery takes time. At a time of unprecedented uncertainty, we need to let working families on the frontlines of the pandemic know that they will be able to keep more of their hard-earned money in the long-term.”
