This paper draws upon results from a paper in the IRS Statistics of Income Paper Series entitled "New Evidence on the Long- Term Impacts of Tax Credits on Earnings." Tax microdata were not accessed to write the present paper, as all results using tax data are based on tables contained in the SOI white paper. Peter Ganong, Sarah Griffis, Michal Kolesar, Jessica Laird, and Heather Sarsons provided outstanding research assistance.
