I hope the EIC tax credit goes away

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
For people who don't pay taxes! I'm sick of paying so much in taxes and getting crap back, yet lazy people who live off welfare get money! You shouldn't get more then you pay, how is that a REFUND? A refund would imply you paid into it. I hate seeing people bragging on here about getting $10k tax "refunds" when they pay zero into it, that's bs and why our country is in debt.

I usually get a refund. But I work full time and have extra withheld. I usually only get back 2K. I am low income and have a dependent. I don't see how people in the same situation get back so so much more.

I have to admit though, I am jealous of those who get a refund. Who wouldnt want to have a winfall of money once a year?? hell yeah I am jealous! But I also know there are income guidelines to get it ao I am not jealous of that part....just the concept of getting so much back annually!

I agree with your post, assuming your facts are correct.  I have to admit I know nothing about the EIC.  Who gets it?  How much is it?

So apparently we never qualified for it.  That's a crock.  Seriously, if you can't afford the kids, don't have them.

 I agree and I also think there should be a flat tax rate across the board.....

I agree that it needs to go away or at the very least be greatly downsized.  It isn't fair and lest anyone forgot, our country is already in debt!!!
