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?

They claim single and zero all year long and then at the end claim married and 2. 

That's what my friend does. Her husband makes over $75,000 but they end up with about $9,000 back every year. They have two kids.

We both claim zero all year and at tax time we have 3 kids. I'd rather get back the money in a lump sum cause I'd blow it if I got a little back each check.


Quoting Anonymous:

Some people claim zero on thier work forms which is like giving the government an interest free loan.



Also there are other credits for other things like adoption and such, plus the EIC which are for people with a low taxable income.

I wouldn't choose to loan the government anything, since they don't return the favor.

IT'S NOT FROM TONS OF KIDS LOL,I HAVE 5 AND YOU ONLY GET EIC OR CHILD TAX CREDIT FOR 3 and it's always been this way. It's not being over the bracket for EIC AND NOT BEING UNDER DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH YOU MAKE AND DEPENDANTS THAT EQUALS WHAT U GET BACK IN EIC THATS WHERE MOST PEOPLES MONEY BACK COMES FROM.

EXAMPLE IF YOU MADE ROUGHLY 13000,AND HAD 3 KIDS YOU'D GET BACK AROUND 5000.00. BUT IF YOU'VE MADE MORE AND PAID IN MORE TAXES WELL YOU GET THOSE BACK TOO SOOO YEA..WILL BE EVEN MORE..YOU FOLLOWING?

this is my first year filing with my house and second with my son, I would really like to know what all is needed to take to file? I have not worked since November of 2012 so I have no idea what all would be needed to take with me for tax purposes. Guess maybe I should talk to a tax consultant about these questions. lol.

I went a year without work and they told me I couldn't file because I didn't have anything to file on

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