What gets me is they don't have to claim welfare $$ on their tax forms or report to the welfare people they just got $10,000 dollars from the IRS and they walk around with new IPhones lap tops etc... Ridiculous

Those receiving public assistance are required to report their income tax return.Many are cut off from receiving any assistance for the next month or so when they can then claim they have little to no income coming in anymore.Some use the surplus to get a vehicle on the road and are able to get off assistance.
Well yes

They have big screen televisions, cable, cell phones, ipods, computers, internet, sometimes multiple cars.

IF they're working, it's under the table, like construction, or daycare, hair cutting, etc. etc.

You seriously do not have a clue if you think women have children in order to get the EIC credit.Also you do not have a clue if you seriously think that babysitting is not considered work and a legitimate reason to claim an income tax.As matter of fact one could be charged for tax fraud for not claiming babysitting income.The Dept of Social Services often encourages their recipients to get into the babysitting as a source of income thus allowing others to work and eventually get off welfare.It may not seem fair that those making $10,000-$12,000 make the maximum credit refund but that is a beef one should IRS about not the ones who are trying to support their families.

EIC is a joke! No one should get more than what they pay in. If so, then everyone should qualify for the EIC not just the low income. These people are already live off the government, my husband and I both work in law enforcement and we always have to pay back which I don't mind. people who smooch off the government get back these large refunds and take luxury trips to Cancun, Central America, Europe ect....and I can't even afford to leave the state!!!

EIC is a joke...a reward for having kids...don't have them if you can't afford them. So many half brothers and sisters in this damned area, it's confusing and will be unsafe down the road when they inter marry. Some of us work very hard, rewarded with higher taxes to "assist" your refund.
