  • If after EIC and child credits or expense write offs, someone's income falls below the taxable amounts, then no, they do not pay taxes! I'm not sure what the official poverty line is, about $9,000/year?

    Which is pretty much what I earned when I was in college, so I didn't really pay taxes. Any income that was withheld was returned to me when I filed my taxes...usually around $700+ which was JUST enough to enjoy myself at Spring Break!!! :o)

  • For clarity, I hope you don't mind if I translate EIC is Earned Income Credit.

  • My daughter made $20,000.00 last year, her income tax return was $980.00 as a single person, no children. The taxes that she paid in, were refunded to her.

  • Regarless of whether you work, collect benefits or are retired, you pay taxes. Income taxes is just one form. When you buy gas, you pay a federal and state tax. When you own property, you pay realestate taxes. When you buy food, you pay a tax. When you drive a toll road, you pay a tax. When you buy a car or truck, you pay taxes. Buy a pack of cigarettes, you pay federal and state taxes. Revenue is not just derived from income taxes. Every man, woman and child pays taxes.
