URGENT: Adoption Tax Credit Advocates Needed in Specific States
The Adoption Tax Credit Working Group Executive Committee has released this urgent update to their efforts to save the adoption tax credit from elimination in the current versions of the tax reform bill.
This is a time-sensitive matter and Creating a Family proudly stands with Save The Adoption Tax Credit’s Working Committee in asking our members and readers to please share the information here as widely and broadly as you can. There have been more than 400,000 messages sent by advocates and families just like you. But it’s not over yet and there’s more to be done. The ATC website has a sample letter with ideas for contact. They’ve also created a fantastic dropbox of graphics to help you spread the word.
…WE NEED MORE HELP URGENTLY. If you live in or near the district of Republican members of the House Ways and Means Committee, we need you to use this link to send a message to your member of Congress. They need to hear right away how important the adoption tax credit is to their constituents. They will be working on the bill tomorrow so this is the time to act. Please also share this message with anyone you know in these communities. Thank you!!
