A strong Kentucky economy is based on the foundation of  local economies; in turn, local economies depend on stable, working  families. Members of the Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform  and policymakers are facing critical decisions as they work to make  recommendations to modernize Kentucky’s tax system and hopefully build a  stronger future for Kentucky. A state EITC is a proven way to increase  work participation, generate local business, and pull families from  poverty to prosperity.

Please join Kentucky Youth Advocates and others across the  state by signing on to the following letter encouraging the Governor’s  Blue Ribbon Commission on Tax Reform to enact a state Earned Income Tax  Credit.

Who should sign? Local and state organizations of every kind  interested in building a stronger future for Kentucky through a state  Earned Income Tax Credit.

Read and sign the letter.

The deadline for signing on is Friday, October 19.
