Most families in this town, when fortunate, make about 25,000 - 30,000 ,and that's the working middle class in this area. What Washington deems as middle class is what we consider wealthy

<quoted text>Okay, dum dum. One must EARN income in order to get the refund. If one is on unemployment, TANIF, disability.....no EIC refund. Go to the IRS site, because the info is there. Plus the poorest of the poor pay taxes. Maybe not federal, but sales, property, and real estate, gas, state, pay roll, etc. The EIC credit is to make up for the inequality of wages. You have a problem with the working poor? Take it up with the owners of Walmart, Mc Donald;s or any other mulit billion dollar comapany that pays lowest wages possible.
not one person HAS to work there, but it's a free choice. And all citizens should pay a portion of their assets to the good of the USA.

No, but some have no choice but to work there. Not everyone is going to be a nuclear physicist or born into a family company. That is no excuse, either, to pay people a low, chump wage, either. The dumbest person working in Walmart is still helping to make one family even more wealthy. Go look up the subsidies Walmart gets and remember we, the US taxpayers, also help subsidize their employees who are not paid well enough to feed their kids and qualify for EBT.

you all need to do your research you must make at least,$9,999.00 to get the EIC back on your taxes however anyone who has dependents and makes the $1 mentioned earlier can get a child tax credit of $3800 per child. The child tax credit is different than EIC. Yes $9,999.00 for a whole year of work isn't much but at least you are working for the retard that posted how low class people get back thousands you should thank the ones who get out and get jobs to get a refund because they at least have a job so they are paying their own way not sitting at home on the couch raking in welfare playing a X-Box or some BS!! I wouldn't consider my self any class other than human, however we did bring in $64,000.00 in 2011 and I by no means feel EIC is only for low class (not even sure what you are considering low class, I might be low class in your book)I filed my taxes and got to claim EIC and got back a hefty refund THANK YOU VERY MUCH.. If you don't then maybe you need a new tax consultant. MR middle class man.

No, it sounds like you should find an actual accountant who is honest. Unless you did something sketchy there is no way you qualified for the EIC making $64K, regardless of the number of kids you have. If you have a farm or business then you could have reduced your taxable income in order to qualify for the EIC but otherwise you did not qualify for it. And I don't need to research it, I've been in the accounting / tax field for almost 20 years.

Really! My husband I have never qualified for it and we did not start making a combined total over $60,000 until seven years ago. We use a reputable tax service. You are speaking the truth!

The EIC credit is to make up for the inequality of wages.That is what the gov't says, but really, the more people that you can make dependent on the federal government, the more dependent on you they are and that equals power and that equals re-election.

So don't accept this notion that the original purpose of the safety net was just for the poor. It was sold that way, but that was NEVER their intention.

The government safety net was created to keep Americans from abject poverty, but the poorest households NO longer receive a majority of government benefits, but the so called "middle" class. That is why some household making in the 60,000 range, can still get Earned Income Tax Credit.
