this is usa chat but..... for those who file in the usa, there is gold ($800 for a family) in line 63. i had missed it, and luckily hadn't mailed my forms yet and a minor adjustment at the end of the form that took about 5 minutes got me $800us

The new tax credit, championed by President Obama as a follow-through on his campaign promise to provide broad-based tax relief, affects 95 percent of all Americans by cutting $400 from the total tax bill for individual filers and $800 for married couples.

But what millions of taxpayers did not realize was that to have the credit deducted from the total amount of taxes owed, they are required to complete a new form, Schedule M. For millions of retirees, the procedure also requires an additional step because they have to deduct the tax break, known as the “Making Work Pay” credit, from other tax credits they may have received.

While either of those procedures takes only a few minutes, I.R.S. officials said that the unfamiliarity with the process of claiming the credit had led to errors in more than four million of the 82 million returns processed as of this week. The government expects to receive 60 million more returns by the filing deadline on Thursday, so it is possible that millions of additional returns will also contain similar errors.

I'm assuming that was a tongue in cheek comment?


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

You consider a tax credit as free money?

Complying may result in your providing more confidential information and that is irreversible which "may" result in more tax liability later on in life........the choice is yours.

As an S-Corp. I get killed with the unfair progressive tax system. Now I will ALSO be faced with the Value Added Tax from this current nonadministration and their about to be repealed socialist nonsense. Midterms are the Great RIGHT Hope.
