The 2013 Family Tax Relief Act

How would a tax break of $500 for your family sound? How about $1,000? $2,000? Or more?

That’s how much tax relief I’m fighting to deliver you with the new Family Tax Relief Act -- a simple, straightforward reform bill with one goal: Putting more money into your pocket.

We all know these are challenging times. Families across the state are struggling just to make ends meet. Unfortunately, our hard-working middle class has too often been overlooked.

That’s why I’m supporting the Family Tax Relief Act. This bill recognizes the reality that our tax code and family assistance initiatives have not kept pace with inflation and the new economic realities we face every day.

It’s time we keep YOUR money in YOUR pockets.

My plan puts families first and prevents inflation from robbing you of the relief you need, by doing the following:

·        Updating the value of the Dependent Exemption, the Child Tax Credit, and the Dependent Care Credit;

·        Providing an entirely new $500 Child Tax Credit enhancement; and

·        Restoring your family’s STAR Rebate checks, which never should have been taken away in the first place.


By updating, enhancing and restoring these items, my Family Tax Relief Act could put hundreds, and possibly thousands, of dollars back where it belongs -- in your pocket!
