Go figure. So, I get a tax break in my tax rate but have to give it back for loss of the property tax deduction. Again, go figure.

If they had stopped the earned-income credit scheme or put a minimum tax on everyone, I’d feel better about it. Even if the minimum was only $100, at least everyone would have a dog in the hunt.

The EITC and child tax credits are RIFE with fraud and abuse, as shown SEVERAL times by 20/20 and 60 minutes… DO away with both of them, if they are going to get rid of the state or property tax deduction. BUT then i would prefer a FLAT tax and NO DEDUCTIONS/Credits or the like..

Neither will ever be implemented, as both take bribery opportunities away from congress critters.

THAT is why i am with Snattle, go with a FLAT tax everyone pays, NO deductions for anything period. VN:D [1.9.6_1107]Rating: 5.0/5 (7 votes cast) Well, for openers, if the WORTHLESS Dem-loving IRS would crack down on FRAUDULENT refunds to ILLEGALS, then they could afford to give those of us who are actual, you know, CITIZENS and live here LEGALLY more of a break! If the IRS is just going to turn a blind eye to this kind of FRAUD, what EARTHLY good are they? DISBAND that unconstitutional Gestapo-like HORROR and save all of us a LOT of money!

BUT STOP people getting their returns on those quick ‘credit cards’ which can’t bloody well get tracked.. Also DO away with allowing illegal aliens the right to even DO a tax return, since they technically SHOULDN’T be working, thus shouldn’t have a W2 form, and thus shouldn’t be doing a return in the first place, which then lets them claim their Cousins kids, their neighbors kids and the like ALL of which still live back in Mexico, Brazil or Chile (eTC).. IIRC a 60 minute expose back in 2014/15 time frame, did a study of that, after getting 4 dozen records, and of the families claiming more than 3 kids, ONLY ONE had even two of the 4+ kids they were claiming actually LIVING in the states with them, but 1 of those\ kids was NOT the woman’s biological kid (OR even legally adopted), but he was her SISTER’s kid, who was back living in mexicant… Another woman, claimed iirc 7 kids, NOT ONE lived with her in the states, and SHE HAD NOT ONE birth certificate or other record PROVING she even had kids, and willfully claimed “My friends give my husband a 15% kick back on what we sent back ot Mexico, so they let us claim THEIR kids on our taxes.. The USA is foolish for this, but i dont care, they give me more money in one return, than my husband could earn back home in 5 years of working”… VN:D [1.9.6_1107]Rating: 5.0/5 (5 votes cast) Log in to Reply I too am screwed. Retired, widowed, no kids – ever-, big house, vicious property taxes, rising medical expenses and declining income. That double personal deduction is nearly useless to me. Roughed it out and it looks as if the only cure is to sell the house and elect new representative and senator. There are enough illegals claiming the kiddie tax credit for children living in Mexico here in Texas to just about equal Mexico’s GDP. Sick of it and them. Once again we hear the terrifying phrase, “I’m from the government and I am here to help you.” I would much prefer to be left the hell alone.
