Says Child Tax Credit Improvement Act also ends IRS refunds for illegal immigrants

Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21) today voted in favor of the Child Tax Credit Improvement Act.

Congressman Lamar Smith: “Child Tax Credits have traditionally been a way our government recognizes the valuable role families play in caring for the next generation. By allowing parents to keep more of their hard-earned money, this bill will give working families a much-needed boost.

“In addition, it also reins in bad IRS policies that have paid out more than $4.2 billion in taxpayer dollars to millions of illegal immigrants. Our bill puts an end to this egregious waste of taxpayer dollars and ensures our policies place the highest priorities on working American families.”
