People need to check themselves before they criticize others for how much money they make or the amount of kids they have. We don't know each others situations.

Sure but you can not put anything into federal all year and still get that much.

You also understand no one explains this, my son is almost 3 and no one has once said this to me from H&r block to turbo tax to the local county. So if I basically check that box will it distribute my EIC of $3,100 evenly throughout the 12 months?

im planning pretty horribly according to you genius?
i understand your logic about wanting your $$ and not wanting to give the govt loans yada yada...but implying just because you work in the field and have your opinion, and that everyone is doing it wrong...well quite frankly makes you sound like a douche
SHHHHHH!!!! there's only one right way
