These lazy losers should not get thousands in tax refunds. I don't care how many kids you have with no support from baby daddies. It's your fault you are poor not mine. Go to work and get off the pills and booze and quit sucking the teet of the govt. These people who don't even try to better themselves make me sick. Everybody has to work and you should too. Makes me sick I have to pay for your sorry a$$.

100% agreed. Quit giving these people extra $$ for every time they have a baby and lets see how quickly the rate of birth amongst welfare recipients goes down !! Sad thing is there are honest people that need help, and they are usually the ones that don't get it.

In order to get EARNED INCOME credit...you have to have EARNED INCOME...meaning that these people DO WORK...else they would not have EARNED INCOME.

And from the chart the more you make the more you get until you hit a certain amount of EARNED INCOME.

AND you only get EARNED INCOME credit for up to three children, doesn't help to have 4 or more.

Uh, I don't know of any unemployed people getting tax refunds. If no taxes were withheld then there is nothing to refund.

well I say if you don't work you need to be beat. We need to put you in the center of the square in town and all of us working citizens get to stone you! If you are self employed and cheat on taxes or just cheat period, you are exempt (cause if you are smart enough to snow peoiple you should be allowed to get away with it and not be punished for being smart). No excuses excepted like not being able to find a job, or that you have been laid off but rules do not apply if you are a louse that lays up and draws disability cause of some kind of injury (that you actually healed up long ago) or you are mental and get crazy checks. Rules bent for same reason as stated above.

income is not the only way we are taxed! don't forget about everytime you buy something you pay tax and tax on every bill you pay also. car registration, land tax, luxury tax (like on alcohol and smokes).

It makes me furious to see this "program" at work. Can't be a refund if you don't pay anything in. So, you know what that means. These "earned income credit" welfare folks are getting the money paid in by the hard working people. If they'd save it or do something constructive with it, maybe I could tolerate it a little better. But........NOOOOOOOOO. As fast as they can to wally world for a 60 inch tv, beer and cigarettes, and a stop at the tote the note lot on the way home for a saturday night special, or other such non-necessary bull spit. Don't know about any of you, but I'm tired of working and paying my share just so that they government can give it to people who will never be good stewards of the money they have because they know there will be more coming. It's disgusting.

I wish the goverment did a little homework on earned income credit. I know a man living in Michigan, claims his grandkids living in Tennessee because he knows the mother dont work and is living on welfare, so he gets a big refund and dont pay a dime for the help of the kids. How can someone draw foodstamps in tennessee and there grandpa claim them in Michigan?

If you pay $ 1, 000 in taxes that should be the most you can get. It isn't fair for some to get more than they have paid in, the so called " earned income credit " is so unfair.

I know lots of them. And I do mean lots. Wake up. It is called EARNED INCOME TAX REFUND. It has been in place for a number of years to "equalize" or redistribute the wealth. They, and we know who they is, get food stamps, free cell phones, gov. housing, etc. and more of a refund via the EIR than many that do work and pay in. What a country! No wonder everyone wants to come here. Oh, forgot about free health care when the rest of us are paying lots for our health care. Don't let any of them take care of their kids, put shoes and socks on them, make sure they eat right, keep them clean and germ free as possible, so they can run to the ER or the doctor's office for a runny nose, ear ache, colds, sore throats, etc. at tax payer's expense.

You are soooo wrong about getting the Earned Income Refund. The less you work, the more you get.

Earned income is just that...EARNED. You have to pay tax on social security benefits. They're not getting more than they were given in the first place. Whether you agree with the reasons people draw or not, the fact remains that they're not getting more money.

You are sooo stupid and miserable. Instead of whining, run for political office and fix everything to your liking so we'll know what a perfect world is. Then maybe your never-ending moaning can take a breather.

That would require doing something. Complaining is the lazy man's outlet.

The key words here are "YOU WORK", you aren't trying to freeload off the taxpaying citizens. I commend people like you, you're doing your best and you should get assistance when assistance is needed.
The problem is there's so many people not working -
working off the books - lying, cheating, scamming and it screws people that really need the help and can't get it. Best of luck &
Kudo's to you for doing the right thing !!

Does it bother you that Mitt Romney and people like him park their money in the Cayman islands, avoiding taxes? Didn't think so! Makes me sick that I have to pay for his sorry ass! How about you? Didn't thinks so!

I agree with this. There are plenty of bums who don't do anything but eat Doritos and draw a check but they really aren't the ones draining our resources once you add up all the numbers. It's the wealthier people who can afford to stash their money in other countries and hire accountants to find and exploit every loophole out there.

Doesn't bother me. It's his money he worked hard for. The top 40% already pay 85% of the taxes. I'm guessing you included use every loophole possible. Why should we just give our money to the govt for them to redistribute it to a bunch of lazy no good leaches of society. Good lord we are taxed every time we turn around. Don't be jealous of others for what they have.
