RESULTS-Santa Fe: Speaker to Discuss Tax Credits for Low-Income Families

RESULTS-Santa Fe invites you to participate in the September RESULTS national conference call followed by its local meeting.  The gathering will take place on  Saturday, September 8, 10:30 a.m., in the library of  the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Santa Fe, 107 W. Barcelona.

Theresa Upshaw, Volunteer and Site Coordinator  for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) with the Northern Pueblos Housing Authority is a featured guest speaker. Theresa will share with us the stories of the people she assists who receive Earned Income Tax and Child Tax Credits and how important these two tax programs are to helping families out of poverty. 

RESULTS has worked very hard this year to advocate for preserving the improvements made to the EITC/CTC in 2009 which are set to expire at the end of this year if not acted on by Congress. The information that Theresa brings us will inspire and strengthen our advocacy

Bread for the World is also working to preserve funding for tax credits for working families via one of its four mini-campaigns for this year's Offering of Letters.
