PENNSYLVANIA — Today is the first day Pennsylvanians will start receiving a monthly tax cut of up to $300 per child as part of the American Rescue Plan. Thanks to President Biden and Democrats, and no thanks to Republicans in Congress who unanimously opposed this relief plan, this tax cut will provide additional relief of up to $1,600 per child to the families of 2,368,000 children in Pennsylvania, helping lift 140,000 children out of poverty. Millions of working- and middle-class families are feeling a sense of relief knowing they will have more money in their pockets for paying bills, purchasing school supplies for their kids, and saving for the future.
