Low-Income Workers Could Get Child Tax Credit 4-20-2011

Low-income workers may get a $25-per-child Michigan tax credit under a plan being discussed at the Capitol.
House Tax Policy Committee Chairman Jud Gilbert said the state can't afford the $360 million price tag for the state Earned Income Tax Credit, but it can help low-income families with about $100 million in tax breaks.
The per-child credit would give $25 million to low-income families, with most also sharing in $79 million set aside to increase an income tax credit for the property taxes or rent they pay.
Lt. Gov. Brian Calley said Wednesday the administration is working with Gilbert, an Algonac Republican.
The Michigan League for Human Services has fought elimination of the state EITC.
A spokeswoman said low-income working families will lose hundreds of dollars if it's scrapped.
