 I might get a couple hundred bucks due to overpayment on my part because of several changes in our income, etc.

Oh it gets better. The welfare queens with more than 3 kids actually have some one else claim their "extra" kids to split the "extra EIC". You can only claim 3 kids so if you have more it won't affect your tax return. So if you have someone else claim the kid, you both can get more $$$ brilliant right ? EIC needs to go.

the eic officially pisses me off now.

We'll be getting back about $12k we are not married and each claim a child with him as head of household and me as single our combined income this year was about $25k

We just bought our home so we won't have a change in taxes this year. It will be interesting to see what it does to next years though ! Plus another kid to claim.

Quoting CocoaKisses70:

When you own a home you get back way more,Not everyone is getting money back just because of EIC. Kids and a home are your biggest tax shelters.

The difference between having kids and a home and EIC is that ONLY the EIC (well the child tax credit also) is MEANS tested-the mortgage deduction is available to anyone who has a mortgage.  the child deduction is available to anyone that has kids-EIC is NOT available to all-instead it is a form of PA DESIGNED and INTENDED for the working poor-which has been extended far beyond it's original scope.

I'm pretty sure you can. You can't file married but separate and claim EIC.

You can't claim eic under head of household

No thanks, I don't care to. We pay to have our taxes prepared professionally, so I trust them to know the tax laws.

We aren't married, and I didn't work. He could claim me as a dependent under head of household.

This was a few years ago. I work now, so it's a moot point.

Quoting FL2AK:

Go read the head of household section at IRS.gov.




Quoting Anonymous:

He can if they're not legally married and she does not work.





My SO claims me under head of household. We only get about $1,500 back on our tax return, though.





Quoting FL2AK:

You need to review the tax laws, he cannot claim you under head of household. He can the children though.

never claimed to be special.

It's called a tax return, not a gift, so I am getting back $12k after we file. If I did not file, we would get nothing. Regardless of what we do or don't pay in taxes, we do contribute to all the businesses we purchase from and the sales tax we pay goes to the state as well as any tolls we pay to get to and from work, so you're quite welcome. Without the working poor there would be none on top because you aren't the one cleaning your fucking room at the hotel or bagging your fucking groceries now are you or cooking your meal at the restaurant it washing dishes at the restaurant etc

What did you and he pay in?



Please don't post false information.  You are not "getting back" about $12k.  You are getting back about $2k, which means you don't have any federal tax liability.  Thanks for nothing.  And your getting a gift of 10K.  Courtesy of the people who do pay taxes.


get over yourself.  the rest of us pay all those other taxes too.  and federal income taxes--which you DON"T pay.  and we work too, BTW.  you're nothing special.
