I am getting back $9,000.00 and worked YTD $16,000.00 Not sure how much I actually paid in but I claimed the Earned Income Credit and the Child Tax Credit for my two children. I plan to pay off some old debt and for the next 12 months try to better my credit, pay up some bills, get life insurence incase something happens my children will be taken care of, get two savings bonds one each for the kids, get a vehicle with a down payment and pay monthly payments on it. I wanted to get us a house but my credit score is to low from medical bills but they are only a couple of thousand so I am luckier then some. Probably the only thing I plan to buy as just something for myself is an Iphone 5. When I was younger my mother had me and my siblings on a check. When they became adults they stayed on theirs but as soon as I turned 18 I turned the check down and got a job and worked full time ever since. I have gotten help with foodstamps and bills but I have also always worked full time. I believe they should start drug testing people that get benifits. I know people say if they do that then the kids will starve well those kids are not getting those food stamps anyway a lot of the parents sell the food stamps for drug money. And if they get a car through DHHR, kids clothing, christmas presents through a program it gets sold to for drug money too. Not all but a lot do this. Best thing to do is drug test them if they fail take the benifits away and for people to pay attention if children are dirty and look hungry call cps. A person who is poor, needing help taking care of their family and wanting to better their life is not going to fail the drug test. Now say a person has a drug problem but wants help to stop then put them in drug courts or whatever for 12 months and drug test them every 3 months. I don't know I don't really have the #1 answers but there are ways that these things can be dealt with. I just don't understand why they haven't made some kind of changes.
you should have done the right thing kept the check with two kids it would be way more than you earn and you could have picked up some work for cash which would be a win win for both partys and still have the bennies for a bettwer quality of life think about it

People like you are the problem. That makes me sick. You made $16000 for the year but get $9000 back because you have kids? I'm glad people like myself who went to college and didn't have kids starting at age 16 have to pay out the ears, while irresponsibility is rewarded. I paid $8500 in federal taxes and get back less than $1000. You paid probably $1000 in taxes and get back $9000. That's just beautiful.

The reason is because we give poor people the EITC as an incentive to work. If we didn't, staying on welfare would be more lucrative.

It makes you sick that I payed taxes like everyone else and got no help like everyone else and this year needed a little help? I do not do drugs, dont drink, dont smoke, and dont party... Just want to pay off my medical bills, fix my credit, get a safe vehcile for my childrens doctor appointment so we dont break down, pay up my bills to help me and my children out through a hard year? Wow you are so right a person that acually doesn't do drugs, works full time, and actually tries to better their life and their childrens life that is just so sickening!!! So I guess people that have lived off the system for 10 years and will the next 10 years is not sickening at all. Oh wow I am glad I turned down the check my parents wanted me to live off of. Glad as soon as I turned 18 I worked full time 3 and 4 jobs at a time. I never slept. never ate thought I would die and did that for years. My children are not very old at all and you are ignorant because those tax credits and benifits are to HELP PEOPLE THROUGH A BAD YEAR, HELP THEM GET BACK ON THEIR FEET so they don't have to LIVE off the system. I was raised that I need an education and that it was okay to live off the system and took it upon myself to live differently but like every human being I needed a little help so I got it. If thats sickening then so be it but at least I am not shooting crap in my vains, or snorting crap up my nose, letting my kids go dirty or hungry!

You actually have to work to get the eic. That's where the "earned income" part comes from RETARD.
Ahhh, someone who isn't completely ignorant.

Ok clearly so many people have been hiding in a box as the crimes in the world as evolved... There are such thing's as tax fraud, bank fraud, identity theft etc... if there is a way to everything these day. Not all criminals are on welfare. The stupidity of people saying a person having tattoos classify a person in a lower class is one of the most retarded shit I ever heard of. The whole Doritos and soda shit... yes you too should punch yourself in the face. Now in days so many people comments fraudulent crimes.

you can push out some welfare kids, make about 10k a year because you will not work anymore than that and get 6000.00 back.

The trash lays around in their stinky houses screwing to keep getting more benefits. Taking drugs that causes them to have retarded kids (more benefits).
wic, hud, earned income credit, low energy assistance, food banks etc.

free phones (paying people have a surcharge on your phone bill that pays for the free ones).

Laziness is rewarded in America. Hard workers are punished by high taxes and red tape.

Come one everyone. Do you really think you get a tax return if you haven't worked. Hello.... Earned Income Credit = Earned Income, thus got the name Earned Income Credit. If you haven't earned income for the year, you can't get Earned Income Credit or any other kind of credit. If you know someone getting thousands of dollars back in tax return and they really haven't worked, then they are turning in something illegal for sure.

If you think it's fraud, you are grossly mistaken. I have two contacts in banks, who tell me about all the welfare mamas who come in every february and cash federal refund check ranging anywhere from 5-11,000. Asked a tax preparer about this and he said it is totally legit. All the credits for children, head of household, eic, etc.. add up to tons of free money. These credits are not based on how much you pay in, but on your claming status and dependents.

I had a friend go to prison for selling his vote. I guess it's OK for liberal democrats.
