I know a lady who has this situation I have described. And dh says if you don't work you don't get $ back.
He also says if a mom were single (say she has 3 kids) and made $20,000 in a year. If she had $4,000 withheld from her check she is only eligible to receive $4,000 back although she has 3 children. I think she would get $3,300 per child. What are your thoughts on these 2 situations I have described?

Thanks
Not sure on the first. I think you need to work to get the EIC but the second would get everything they paid plus way more. I know someone who only makes $30K/year and has 3 kids and gets back about $12K. You can most certainly get back more than you pay (which I think is terrible but that is another thread)
