No. I use the tax preparation services from a local non-profit to file my taxes and receive my EITC.
So now we know that not only are you a loser who cannot support themselves but you are also raising a future generation of losers to live off the productive in this country. At least your consistent.

I'm sure that you believe that you qualify for quite a lot.

I simply utilize the federal and state programs available to me. If I was paid a living wage with real hours I would not qualify. However, because the 1% is greedy and refuses to share profits through ethical and fair wages I must depend upon the state to help improve my quality of life.

You simply have no problem living off the labors of others. Given that you seem to have no problem with others being forced to support you, I doubt that in any reality that you would be an exemplary employee. Rather you appear to be the sort who would look to skirt your responsibilities any way you could all the while attempting to blame your employer/supervisor for your lack of productivity. So in real terms you are most likely over paid at your current rate. This would also explain why with your lengthy credentials ( at least according to you), that you still cannot find gainful employment. I would have to believe that prospective employers see the same in you that I do.

You mean the 1% who risked their own money to build a career, a company and a future, who because of their business savvy are now able to provide employment for others to earn a living, are not willing to just hand you what they themselves had to work for?

The fact that you have no shame in your dependence on the productive in this country speaks volumes about you. Given your attitude, you will always be the dog in the yard dependent on your masters to provide your a box to sleep in and food in your bowl. SAD!

Only a fool like you would oppose the EITC. It rewards low-income Americans for working.
And you need help everyday getting to work. It's called a state road and traffic signals that help prevent accidents.
It rewards?One of my next door neighbors a few years back never worked,had three kids,received all the little Gov goodies and was still able to get 5500 refund.She was very capable of working but chose to stay home.She did not deserve a dime of that refund,nor do you.

Oh, so we should shut down the EITC program because you spied on your neighbor and made the judgement that she was not trying to find work. Yeah.... Okay.... LOL. Are you people for real?

Well, that sort of behavior didn't hurt Clinton's popularity, either. Most of us would vote him back into office if we could, so what was your point??

Do you know anything about the EITC program? In the 1970s the EITC was introduced by conservative GOPers who believed that low-income wage earners with children should be rewarded to help alleviate poverty. Over the years the law has become very successful to the point of becoming a mini-economic stimulus in many communities. In recent years, Democrats and some moderate GOPers have advocated for expanding the EITC to include low-income single working adults.

I wasn't born yesterday Joseph.Like every other Gov program out there billions in fraudulent claims.Billions given to illegals.The story I told of my neighbor,she didn't deserve that money.What she needed was a swift kick in the pants to get off her lazy a$$.If the Gov provides everything for a household they should not get that money if they are NOT doing something for their community in return.I average 60 hours a week working and have to pay taxes every year.If your not following what I am saying then I take it that you condone behaviors like my ex-neighbors.You are the problem Joseph,not the solution.

I don't know the full story behind your neighbor. But understand, you have to work to qualify for an EITC. It's a good program that helps millions of Americans.

I find the EITC to be helpful. And millions of Americans who qualify agree. As do tens of thousands of businesses who count on sales from EITC money. It's a win anyway you look at it.

Like I said, I don't know the complete story. But people have a right to privacy. Whatever type of public assistance your neighbor receives is between her and her caseworker. It none of my business and it's none of your business.
