In Montana, thousands of families across the state are working but still struggling to make ends meet. Recent economic trends have made it even harder for working families to live above the poverty line. Montana has over 17,000 families that are working but poor.
A state EITC would provide a much-needed economic boost to these hardworking families and their communities. Indeed, the most efficient way to stimulate the Montana economy is to support low-income families who are likely to immediately spend that support in businesses and communities across the state.
MBPC is a nonprofit organization focused on providing credible and timely research and analysis on budget, tax, and economic issues that impact low- and moderate-income Montana families.
