This is the first year I don't qualify to get the earned income credit. It's a little sad, but at the same time I am VERY proud and VERY happy that I have gotten to a point in my life that I don't qualify. :) Does that make sense?

I'm a single mom who after a divorce ended up living with my parents for a year and after that only able to rent a one bedroom apartment for me and my son. To now where I own my own home and am doing pretty well for my self and supporting my son all by myself.

I had to have turbo tax recheck it and then ran the numbers again myself!

Good for you! I totally get it. It's a little sad not to get the money, but wow is it a great feeling to be that financially independent.
