For too long, our tax code has favored big corporations over working families — but it doesn’t have to be that way. Alongside President Biden, I’m pushing to make advanced Child Tax Credit payments permanent and deliver a long-term tax break to hard-working families. But listen — I need your help.
To make the case for a permanent, expanded Child Tax Credit, I need to share stories with my colleagues on Capitol Hill about how the advance Child Tax Credit payments are helping Nevadans recover from the pandemic. Click here to share your story about how the Child Tax Credit is helping your family.
Did the first Child Tax Credit payment help with child care costs? I want to hear from you.
Did it help with medical bills? Tell me about them.
Did the payment help you put food on the table, cover a utility bill, or save up for school supplies? Let me know.
In my district, more than 92 percent of children will benefit from the advance Child Tax Credit. Every family’s story is special — and I’m looking forward to hearing yours.
