Stop the GOP Middle Class tax hike!

Dear Supporter:

We need your help, right now.

Middle class families in North Carolina are under attack in a piece of legislation that goes before the House Finance Committee tomorrow morning.

Republicans in the State House have proposed changes to the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) that will increase the taxes of middle class families across North Carolina (HB 93).

Over 800,000 working North Carolina families qualify for and claim the Earned Income Tax Credit.  About half of them-over 400,000- would see their taxes increased by a total of $50 million if the Republican plan was passed into law.  That's an average tax increase of over $125!

This bill which raises taxes on middle class families will be heard tomorrow has launced a petition to oppose stripping away the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC.)

Click below to put your name on the petition and let Republicans know that raising taxes on middle class families is not the answer!
