An Example of a Letter to Mail, Fax, or E-mail Your Representative Regarding the Marriage Penalty and Family Tax Relief Act of 2001 (H.R. 6)

Mailed or Faxed Correpondence...

To A Representative:

The Honorable (full name)
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative (last name):

For almost all married couples, particularly the 25 million with two incomes who pay more than they would if they were single, the Marriage Penalty and Family Tax Relief Act of 2001 (H.R. 6) would provide needed tax relief. The measure would provide $399 billion over 10 years in tax relief.

The bill would also gradually double the child tax credit to $1,000 by 2006 and, effective this year, would raise the credit from $500 to $600. This would provide quick tax relief as the economic outlook darkens for this nation.

Additionally, so a married couple who gets the tax relief would not be penalized with a subsequent tax increase, the bill also adjusts the alternative minimum tax.

Such tax cuts will help personal budgets that are strained by an increased cost of living. As your constituent, I encourage you to support the Marriage Penalty and Family Tax Relief Act of 2001 (H.R. 6).

Thank you for your consideration to support this bill.

Sincerely,

(Your Name*)
