T17-0209 - Option 3: New $1,500 Young Child Tax Credit (YCTC) for Children < 5 With $0 Earnings Threshold; 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 $1,500 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 the first dollar of earnings. The family would still get their current CTC with no changes.
