Corporate Voices EITC Campaign Highlighted In The News
January 5, 2006
Associated Press, The Chicago Sun Times, and The Washington Post have featured stories about the EITC Corporate Voices campaign, spurred by the toolkits designed at Basis. According to the Associated Press, "an organization of large employers with low-wage workers called Corporate Voices for Working Families started a campaign to teach employers how to introduce the concept of credit to their workers. It's very much a hand-holding process," said Marriott Vice President Donna Klein, president of Corporate Voices for Working Families. "It almost needs to be explained to employees on a one-to-one basis. About 75 percent of those eligible for the credit claim it, according to IRS statistics."

Many of the stories above are about Mediastudio, which changed its name to Basis in 2008.
