Washington made history in 2021 when the legislature passed and funded the Working Families Tax Credit, a first-of-its-kind policy for the state that will put millions of dollars back into the pockets of families. Eligible households can receive up to $1,200 per year and applications for this year's credit open February 1st of this year (more info below!). 

We know this is just the start of our mission to make sure every Washingtonian can put food on the table, pay for emergencies, and go to sleep with peace of mind.

Take action now and email your legislators in the House of Representatives to urge their support of HB 1075 - a bill that will expand and strengthen the Working Families Tax Credit!

House Bill 1075/Senate Bill 5249 expands the Working Families Tax Credit to low-income, working young people and seniors. From young college students to seniors still in the workforce, people with low incomes are all trying to make ends meet. However, the current age range for childless workers limits the lifesaving WFTC cash to those who are 25-65 years old.[1]

HB 1075 is being heard today in the House Appropriations Committee of the Washington House of Representatives. Getting the bill voted out of the Appropriations Committee is an essential step in passing HB 1075 and getting more cash out to families who need it. 

Urge your lawmakers to champion this critical bill! Click here to send your representatives in Olympia a quick message of support.
