Deborah brought up another subject today, the Child Tax Credit. We were surprised when we filed our Canadian taxes for the first time to find that we can receive this tax credit! We just said, "Praise the Lord!" Deborah had this question about this type of tax credit in the US:
Just out of curiousity...in the US, do you get a monthy check for each child? We used to call it Family Allowance...now it's the Child Tax Credit.Deborah, instead of a monthly allotment, the US has an Earned Income Credit for each child that is sent as a lump sum along with your income tax refund. We qualified for that in the US, just as we do here, and I think I like the monthly payments better.
I'm enjoying this discussion, and I hope to have more to say on the topic of health care soon. We're pretty busy right now with preparations for the weekend, so it might be delayed till next week, but we'll get back to it.
