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