Did the EIC discontinue after last year? (Earned Income Credit)

My BIL is convinced that Obama discontinued the EIC for future tax years. He has been spouting off about constantly. It is driving me insane.

  • I really hope not. I need all the credits I can get as I've already been informed that I lost 1 due to my daughter now being 17 (which I totally don't understand as she is still living with me, still a full time student with 1 more yr of high school to go, and I still fully support her)
    I need all the money I can get at tax return time so I can pay off my ex's credit card bills and be able to help her move out (she's going to college)

  • Nope. BIL is incorrect. http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/EITC,-Earned-Income-Tax-Credit,-Questions-and-Answers


    Remember, in-law is a suffix meaning TO BE IGNORED.

  • He is just an asshole all around, so I always ignore him. I didn't believe it because it would be all over the news. People would be super pissed.

    Thanks for the link though!!!
