How in the hell do people get so much back on their tax returns?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I know people expecting $10,000+ and they don't even work... Or if they do they don't make crap or much more than I do... I'm not complaining or jealous I'm seriously just curious... Anybody know?

 i knew a girl who got back 5k last year and didn't work not even a day. she had a friend of hers who went to school do taxes, she did it for her, did a 1099 saying she cleaned houses all year, being that she had 2 kids she got money back. It actually pissed my husband and I off and he consider calling IRS on her. but we never did.

That's what I'm wondering? Clearly must be some illegal shit going on..

Getting that much back without working is absurd. Unless they being claimed by others. I get a refund, but that's because I get taxed hardcore. Not 10k though... That would be fun!

Claim zero all year, child tax credit we have 3 students so you get a credit for having children who are in school. We are only able to claim 3 kids though because after 3 kids child tax credit no longer applies.

We claim 0 all year and then get a lot back. We like it that way, otherwise we never seem to get enough saved for that one big purchase we want/need to make.

i am not sure how she went about it but i know she did a 1099, self-employment. she claim her cleaning supplies as deductions and gas to get to and from jobs. with having kids and making enough to get EIC she was able to get 5k back. you need to talk to someone who knows how to do taxes. and maybe they can help you do it.
