Capitol Hill Watch Alert

House To Vote On Permanent Tax Relief

As early as Wednesday, April 17, 2002, the House of Representatives is expected to vote on a tax relief package that will make all of last year’s tax cuts permanent.  Included in the bill are the elimination of the “marriage penalty,” estate tax, and changes in the income-tax rates.

Also, the measure includes provisions to ease interest payments on estimated taxes and penalties and to extend the taxpayer filing date to April 30th for those filing electronically.

What Can You Do?

Urge your representative to Support Permanent Tax Relief.

Dear Representative (last name):

In less than 10 years President Bush’s tax relief package signed into law last year would be revoked in 2011 and $100 billion in new taxes would be imposed on working Americans. 

In uncertain economic times, as the economy continues to struggle and workers continue to lose their jobs, such actions would hurt long-term economic growth.   By making these tax cuts permanent, it would lead to more opportunities and wealth creation.

As your constituent, I urge you to vote for permanent tax relief.

Sincerely,

(Your Name*)
