Virginia military families get some help if the state makes its earned income tax credit refundable.
The Commonwealth Institute says about 56,000 families in military-heavy Virginia get the federal version of the earned income tax credit or the child tax credit, but right now it's not refundable. If the proposed change passes with law makers in Richmond, it could offset tax increases on sales and gas enacted here last year.
