  • Income/assets and Taxes

    Income and assets provide an essential buffer for parents working to meet children’s needs, and taxes can affect how much income parents have to spend.  Unstable or inadequate income, and inadequate assets, can make it much harder for parents to weather crises and to stably meet their children’s basic needs.  Below are selected materials that explore income, assets, and taxes in the context of children and instability.
