Michelmore discusses the child tax credit on Marketplace

Katherine MichelmoreCurrently, eligible families already get a tax credit for every child 16 and under once a year when they file their taxes, but some families with the lowest incomes miss out on some of the benefit. "The kids who don’t receive the full credit right now are predominantly kids who are lower income, many who are living in poverty, and many who are either Black or Latino," says Katherine Michelmore, assistant professor of public administration and international affairs. She was interviewed for the Marketplace piece, "Relief bill could lift millions of kids out of poverty by expanding tax credit." 02/25/21
