Tax Credits for Working Families Releases Case Study on Vermont Battle to Preserve State EITC

The third in our series of case studies of recent battles over state Earned Income Tax Credits (EITCs) is Vermont, where in 2013 advocates preserved the full state EITC after a Democratic governor proposed reducing it by two-thirds. The study includes:

  • Background information on the political environment in Vermont in 2013;
  • The structure of the campaign to preserve the state’s EITC and the strategy they employed;
  • How key messages resonated with the campaign’s audience;
  • The next steps necessary to continue to preserve Vermont’s EITC; and
  • Tips from advocates.

The full case study is available here. Be sure to watch for our blog as we continue to release a new case study each week.
