For taking a valid Social Security number to qualify, YOu sure are mixing in things about income and not having a qualifying child. The credit can be up to a certain amount, it isn't at a particular maximum level for everyone. First they have to qualify for EITC, otherwise the amount they receive is $0.

Keep YOur reply separated when YOu want to comment about EITC or ACTC; YOu're confusing YOurself...

Of course one must qualify. Likewise, the maximum credit is determined by various factors, as is the case with all IRS tax credits. But, how does that change anything? A qualified couple, filing a joint return with three qualifying children, receives the maximum; while a single filer, with one child, will naturally fall into a different bracket. That's a given. Why are you grasping at straws?

Sorry, but there is nothing confusing about this issue -- at least not for me. It is what it is. And no, I will NOT separate EITC from ACTC, because ACTC is indeed the loophole exploited by illegals who lack a valid SSN because they were unable to obtain a stolen or fake card containing a valid number. They know they can't claim the EITC without a valid SSN, so they claim the ACTC by filing with an ITIN. That's exactly how they beat the system to the tune of $4.2 BILLION dollars, as substantiated by the Treasury report. And, there is nothing you can say that will magically reduce those BILLIONS to ZERO. End of story.

Amaziing how illegals can find the loopholes to cheat Americans, yet the majority can't find the time to learn our language and obey our laws.

End of story indeed.
