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.

What about the people who do pay in to it, don't get pa and live within their means?


who pays in to the EIC?  people just pay taxes generally...then the gov't decided to use some of those taxes to pay people who have kids...either through PA or the EIC..as if the rest of us don't have kids and couldn't use the money ourselves.

I didn't even know what that was before cafe mom. We are never eligible anyway.

 It isn't fair to help people who are struggling to survive?

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!!!

Taxes are your duty. People who get refunds need the money... Grow up!

Not true.  Many EIC receipients utlize the money to go on vacation.  Disney appears to be a favorite destination.  How is that a need?

Dh and I got it the first couple years we had dd, It was such a HUGE help for us. We haven't qualified for it for at least 5 years and now we are part of the top 5% of taxpayers in this country. I have no issues with it. I'd rather see my tax dollars spent on helping people than a lot of other things they're spent on.

This. We haven't qualified in years. Thanks to the crappy construction industry right now, our income went from over 6 figured to around $45000 this year. It has been rough and I am very thankful that we qualify this year and will be able to put a little bit back in savings. Most people against it think that everyone who claims it are "lazy". I really hope for their sake that they don't lose 65% of their income over the course of 1 year!
