McKee announces new child tax rebate for eligible Rhode Island households
NEWPORT, R.I. (WLNE) — Gov. Dan McKee announced a new child tax rebate Tuesday for eligible households in Rhode Island.
McKee was joined by Newport Mayor Jeanne-Marie Napolitano, Sen. Lou DiPalma, and Rep. Lauren Carson at the Florence Gray Center.
In June, the governor signed the state budget which delivered a targeted tax relief to families, including a plan to offer child tax rebates.
The Rhode Island Child Tax provides rebates of $250 per child for up to three children.
The rebate also requires that “Rhode Island residents make up to $100,000 for an individual and $200,000 for joint filers.”
According to the McKee’s office, the plan would support nearly 110,000 families in the state.
