Abstract

Recent proposals in the House and Senate focus on amplifying the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC)—a refundable tax credit for low-income workers—to compensate for growing wage inequity. Authors Andrew Schaefer, Marybeth Mattingly, Kennedy Nickerson, and Jessica Carson find that the share of EITC filers who are families with children is especially high in the poorest counties, including many places throughout the South.
