The Rubio-Lee amendment will help working class families take advantage of the child tax credit if they pay payroll taxes. Go to the action center now and I'll connect you to your senator via your cell phone.
But don't the poorest folks already get the "earned income tax credit?" As far as I know, they do, and that would make the EITC essentially welfare money, because they did not pay any taxes, yet they get a credit which may be a multi-thousand dollar "refund."
American Patriot You're not alone. I agree with you. If one wants to simplify the tax code, there are going to be lots of gored oxen.
No bitterness, this is suppose to be tax simplification. Mixing in additional tax breaks tied to other withholding just complicates things more. A $2000 refundable child tax credit does enough.
@AmericanPatriot I get a sense of bitterness from you. If I pay more taxes than you, are you then driving on MY road? Nothing about taxation or it’s spending is equitable. This isn’t going to cost nearly as much as a thousand other less useful proposals. There’s no argument against it other than the bitter fairness argument the left always pushes.
So those without kids should pick up the tap for those who do. So I go to restaurant to by dinner and the law says you have to pay for your own dinner and for part of the dinner for the guys kids at the next table. If people choose to have kids they should be prepared for what it cost to raise them and not hand the bill to other taxpayers.
