Dear Mr/Mrs IRS

Dear Mr/Mrs IRS,

Over the years you have taken and taken from me. I have sat back and complained somewhat over the years but I know that you always get yours first so I just continue to go with the flow and work my *ss off, because if not I would lose everything that I have, or think that I have.

  • I sit back and file and pay my taxes year after year.
  • I also sit back and watch some low income individuals who receive food stamps, the medical card, WIC, County Funded Childcare, live with their childrens father/mother and work part time jobs because they may have to get up off their lazy bums and do something.
  • I also sit back and watch them NOT get married because they will lose some of these benefits that "WE" pay for.
  • I also sit back and watch them get thousands of dollars on their income tax returns, and I mean like $6,000 - $10,000, while they ALSO receive thousands of tax dollars in benefits.

For example I know a family who gets about $500 per month in food stamps, medical card, WIC for the child under 5, metro housing to help pay their rent and County Funded Daycare and then received a $6300 tax return. This is well over $1000 in benefits per month. All while living with the childrens father, but not married to him and he works a great job. WTH, is this about? We give them thousands of dollars in assistance then give them more of a refund then they actually paid in. Who sets these kinds of asinine* rules? I just do not get it.

But with all that in mind, I would like to say Thank You Mr/Mrs IRS, for giving me a refund this year, when I needed it the most. I will use my refund to pay up some bills and put a part on our daughters Durango. Now, just because I am saying Thank you, does not mean that I like you or agree with how you do things. I think you screw the middle class for sure.

I will not use my refund to throw a keg party (even though it does sound fun) or to have a rib BBQ to feed half of the neighborhood (okay maybe a rib BBQ to feed the family in my house). I am so excited with this refund, I may just kiss my accountant. No, not really! I think I just threw-up in my mouth a little bit.

Until next year,

  1. Tammy Do you live in AZ becasue I swear to god you just hit the nail on the nead! I have heard it time and time again that they will not get married because they will lose their benefits! I believe the system should be a temporary thing! I only received day care assistance as I was a single 20 something mom but I was at the highest level and was kicked off when I made 8.00 an hour! I didnt complain because I was happy I got the help I did! As far as teh huge tax returns that suck I have heard commercials on the radio telling people even if you didnt make any money but have children file because you could get up to xxx in earned income credit BS! You make nothing IMO. I also think it should be you get x amount of help x amount of time this staying on it for life and having more and more while on the system is BS! Ok thanks for letting me rant!
