I agree...

Some refunds are huge for those who didn't pay enough taxes or any taxes..

Usually these lower income folks do the rapid refund, because they cannot wait to get their hands on the money.  They actually pay to do this rapid refund.  It always amazes me.

 

I don't have to worry about refunds anymore.. Government keeps finding ways to tax my ass more and more..

"Some refunds are huge for those who didn't pay enough taxes or any taxes.."

I always thought a tax refund means we paid too much. If somebody paid nothing in taxes, how could they get a refund?

    That's why I posted earlier in response to the comment made by tntea, Stack.  I believe she was referring to those families who qualify for the Earned Income Credit which can be thousands.  Eligibility is not based on how much tax you paid from wages.  Although it's not necessary to have children, most people who get these checks from the IRS do have children.  I don't like cheaters and lazy bums any more than the rest of the taxpayers, but many of these good people put in 50 hours a week and still can't make ends meet.  I do agree with her that the "Rapid Refund" some companies offer is not a wise choice, but I think it's often misrepresented.

      Your reading comprehension is obviously deficient, so I'll try to keep it simple. Perhaps you'll have some small chance of following along that way.

      The only person that was really criticized in this thread is David Edwards, and you chose to suggest that he's probably just like you If you're just like David Edwards then your life is obviously just as sad as his. If you're not like him, then you're obviously clueless about him or you wouldn't have said he's just like you. That means the two choices are sad or clueless.

      Reading my other comments obviously didn't do much for your understanding, either. I didn't say squat about what I would or wouldn't do if I unexpectedly came into a large sum of money. Your belief that my comments suggest anything about me is either the result of your poor reading comprehension, your inability to reason, or both. I didn't give any impression. The impression you got is entirely a product of the way your mind works. I also didn't say anything about 250k feeling like 150k. That's another thing that's the result of some defect in your ability to read something and figure out what it means. As far as my comments about loan payments,  taxes, and insurance, they were right there in the same sentence as the reference to buying a big house and expensive cars, so anyone who can read at a 7th grade level should have understood that they're the expenses that result directly from the house and cars. That you might feel the need for professional help to figure out how to understand them or minimize them doesn't really surprise me, but it's simple enough for most of us to do all on our own. Since you missed it the first time around, I did say that inflation will make 250k the equivalent of 150k at some point in the future.

      As for my attitude and spending habits, they're just two more things you only think you know about.

      I'd ask you for some help with that reality check,  but in the week that you've been here it's been pretty obvious that your keyboard is spewing checks that your intellect is incapable of cashing.

      Ky Floyd,   You have hit the nail on the head!!!! it's quite obvious, he/she isn't educated beyond their intelligence.
