Also, the EIC is "refundable" meaning that you fan get out more than you pay in.
So, if you had $1000 in federal tax withheld and another $1500 in FICA, you can still get the full EIC back ($5000 average... Google for the various amounts)
So, many get a check from the government of the real tax payers $$$
Easy now... You're getting border line. I would hate to see the rath coming your way if you are perceived to have crossed over.
"they" and "their" are the 50% of the population that pay no income tax...
