Tax Bracket and Tax Liabilities for Families With Children

November 22, 2004

Abstract

This tax fact shows that almost half of all children (and 80 percent of kids living with single parents) live in households that currently do not pay any federal income tax (net of credits). Thus, unless a new tax credit or an expansion of a tax credit is made refundable, the subsidy cannot help those children, who are presumably the most economically vulnerable.
