T17-0207 - Option 2: New $1,000 Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC) for Children < 5; Distribution of Federal Tax Change by Expanded Cash Income Percentile, 2017

Table shows the distributional effects by expanded cash income percentile of implementing an additional $1,000 credit (YCTC) for families with children under the age of 5 relative to a current law baseline. The credit would phase-in at a rate of 50 percent starting at $3,000 of earnings. The family would still get their current CTC with no changes.
