Why This Indicator Matters

The Child Tax Credit (CTC) provides important benefits for low-income working families. It’s partially refundable, meaning that taxpayers can receive a refund if the amount of the credit is greater than their taxes owed. This can help keep families out of poverty and provide an economic boost that can improve children’s health and even long-term educational outcomes. See MassBudget’s report, Obstacles on the Road to Opportunity: Finding a Way Forward.
