Re:   US Senator Booker Provides Useful Income Tax Information for New Jersey Mayors

Dear Mayor:

US Senator Cory Booker wants you to be able to help your constituents to take advantage of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). This program can help New Jersey low-income wage earners make ends meet, and encourage struggling Americans to keep working towards a brighter future. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) estimates that only 75% of eligible New Jersey families take advantage of the credit, which President Reagan once called, “… the most effective anti-poverty program in the U.S.”

We have posted Senator Booker’s letter, which includes a link to comprehensive information about the EITC, on our website at http://www.njslom.org/documents/Booker-030614.pdf.

In addition to this, Senator Booker has also provided us with a one-page listing of free IRS tax preparation assistance resources, which we have posted at http://www.njslom.org/documents/tax-prep-assistance.pdf.

We thank Senator Booker for sharing this information and we hope that you will find it useful in your municipality.

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
