That tax credit was a godsend

Posted: February 17, 2004

IN HIS LETTER ("Unearned tax credit"), Vincent P.A. Benedict of Collegeville says he is dreading April 15 because he will be sending a check to the IRS.

I am a single mother who has put herself through almost 10 years of college while working and supporting her family.

I am so looking forward to the day when I will be making enough money that I actually "owe" money to the IRS.

I will never forget the lean years when that Earned Income Tax Credit was there to help pay my gas and electric bills and help me to take my children to the Jersey shore for the weekend.

Instead of being bitter and looking down on others, Mr. Benedict should thank the Lord that he hasn't been in the shoes of those depending on this yearly blessing.
