It meant a great deal to Jess Montejano, a second generation Mexican American, that President Obama supported students with legislation like the American Opportunity Tax Credit. Because of this tax credit, Jess was able to receive an extra $1000 when he filed his 2009 taxes. With this extra financial support, he was able to pay his bills and focus more on his studies.
As Jess shares:
“President Obama really understands the struggles and interests of students. He’s fighting for families like mine to continue to live the American Dream.”
