Urge Your State Senator to Support Caregiver Tax Credit Legislation
On average, family caregivers in Wisconsin spend about $7,000 a year on out-of-pocket costs related to caregiving. This amounts to about 20 percent of their income. These caregivers need and deserve more support. Send your State Senator a message right now, urging him/her to support legislation that would create a $1,000 Caregiver Tax Credit that would provide some support for Wisconsin’s nearly 600,000 family caregivers.
Your legislators need to hear from you that family caregivers are the unsung heroes who are helping loved ones remain living independently in their own homes and communities as long as possible.
Thank you for taking a stand for family caregivers and getting them the support they need.
