Are you saying the government cuts a check to my mortgage company? Or are you saying the government letting me write them a smaller check for the mortgage interest deduction is the government giving me a break?

Why don't I let you believe what you want to believe and you don't project your own thoughts on what my beliefs are. How's that?


I didn't. You mentioned Karma, JCole said he doesn't believe in magic, and I responded to him that you have to believe for it to work.

I know it was a daunting task to follow the responses so I'll let it slide.

I mean you can ignore the fact that your own party refused to make any concrete spending cut proposals for SS and Medicare out of fear that they will piss off the only demographic they have left, old folks. Refused to make any concrete spending cut proposals for Defense because that's where their bread is buttered. And just go on and blame the other guys and ignore the failures of your own party.


My party? I don't really remember having a party but I like to get shitfaced so memory is a little fuzzy.

I'm saying the latter. Exactly how is a deduction different from a credit.....honest question because I'm not seeing the difference? Both Credits and Deductions are designed to reduce one's taxable income and thereby lessen one's tax liability.

Two very different terms with VERY different results. You need to familiarize yourself with the difference of above the line and below the line deductions. The difference between deductions and credits, and the differences with refundable credits from all of the above before you begin giving lectures on how deductions work.


Also, you must not know much about the tax code if you don't realize that the government tries to encourage certain types of behaviors by offering deductions and/or credits. Home ownership is one of these activities. The government taking less from someone IS NOT remotely close to the same thing as paying for their interest. That is just silly. The code is over 2500 pages long, there are thousands of deductions and credits for all sorts of things in there. For you to claim that is some sort of welfare screams of your ignorance of the code.

I remember when it used to be a stigma to have to be on them

There should be a central food pantry that only those cards will work at. Only stocked with certain necessary foods. That might curb some of the abuse

and the government taking less from my pot isn't the same as the government putting something in.

And the welfare queens will flock to it in their new Escalades to stock up on rice and rancid cheese. That'll show 'em.

There is an enormous difference.

Deductions lower your adjusted gross income, that is the income that is subject to tax.

Credits on the other hand actually lower the amount of tax that you owe. Within credits there are non-refundable, and refundable credits. Non refundable credits can only lower the tax you owe to zero. Refundable credits like the additional child tax credit and earned income credit amount to the government giving you money. Oh and believe me the same people who abuse welfare and food stamps know how to abuse the tax code.

So if someone gets a refund by using deductions like the mortgage interest deduction, that is just the government giving the taxpayer their own money back. Whereas people who use a lot of credits and get back more than they had withheld are being given money from the government.
