Kids’ Share 2013Federal Budget Tax Policy
Kids’ Share 2013 is the seventh annual analysis of federal spending and tax investments in children and families. This year’s Kids’ Share report, again led by Urban Institute Senior Fellow Julia Isaacs, finds the largest year-to-year drop in federal investments in children since the early 1980s. It projects that, unless Congress changes course, less than 2¢ of every additional federal dollar spent over the next decade will be invested in children. And Kids’ Share 2013 documents that just four federal tax provisions account for nearly 40% of federal investments in children, underscoring the importance of federal tax reform for children.
The report was commissioned by First Focus and produced by the Urban Institute with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
