Did you do your taxes for 2010? Were you surprised of the results?

With the new laws after Obama I was expecting to get a real shitty outcome (child credit has been reduced, several deductions have been cut out etc), but I was surprised to receive a 6K refund for family of four with 2 kids and mortgage.

  • What child care has been reduced? And what other deductions are you talking about? I haven't seen any of those changes for 2010, and minor changes for 2011.

  • If you received Earned Income Credit, please thank the taxpayer.

    You didn't earn it and someone has to pay for it.
