It is PA. It was instituted to lift working low income families out of poverty. Regan expanded it in lieu of raising the minimum wage, and it's been popular to opt for expanding the EITC rather than raising the minimum wage. (Which in many ways means that the EITC subsidizes the employers of minimum wage workers, since the cost of reducing their poverty would be the responsibility of employers if the minimum wage is raised, but becomes the responsibility of taxpayers and the government if the EITC is expanded.) If minimum wage were adjusted for inflation to be at the amount it was when the EITC was first instituted, then our current federal minimum wage would be $10.00 an hour. Try titling a post "Is the EITC PA?" And add a yes/no poll. They go crazy on here, complaining that the only reason you're refund is so big is because you're selfish and they're getting raped in taxes because of your selfishness. Yada, yada, yada.

DISCLAIMER: You is used in the sense of the universal you and not the personal you. I would have no way of knowing your income or filing status.

Quoting MyGirlsAbbyLiz: its not PA and doesnt apply
Quoting Anonymous: I never saw it as PA, either, until I got it hammered into me here that it's a means tested poverty reduction program, and therefore it is technicaly PA.
Quoting MyGirlsAbbyLiz: i dont consider an earned income credit to be PA seeing as its part of a tax return. its not a long term form of support.
Quoting Anonymous: So, if a serviceman files his taxes and gets all of his federal withholding returned as well as additional monies as part of the Earned Income Tax Credit, which is PA, other people are supporting his family, so he should not have more children?
Quoting MyGirlsAbbyLiz: I said if they can't independently support their kids. Being on PA is not supporting them yourself,other people are.
Quoting Anonymous: Preview of 2012 EITC Income Limits

$45,060 ($50,270 married filing jointly) with three or more qualifying children
$41,952 ($47,162 married filing jointly) with two qualifying children
$36,920 ($42,130 married filing jointly) with one qualifying child
$13,980 ($19,190 married filing jointly) with no qualifying children

You think people shouldn't expand their families unless they make more than this? That cuts out the family planning options of some of our military service members, law enforcement officers, firefighters, and teachers.

Quoting MyGirlsAbbyLiz: Agree. If you can't independently support your kids you don't need more.

Crud. You're right! What site did you get for that?

Quoting OneToughMami: But you know what's god damn hilarious is that hardly any of them want to consider student loans and grants government assistance even though it is listed and I proved it...someone told me the US governments benefits site was incorrect.

taxpayers shouldn't be paying to raise other people's children.
