Child Tax Credit

The side effect of the advance Child Tax Credit payment
As the Coronavirus hits the universe, the world leaders and normal citizens scramble in circles not knowing what to do or where to go just like a poor fly in the closed bottle. Companies begin to shut their doors, people start quitting their jobs or being let go by the employers for the fear of catching Covid-19. People stayed home more and that meant more food was consumed. As people began consuming more food, the savings account began to run out of money especially in America. People begin to leave from hand to mouth. To make the matter worse, American people are not good at saving and therefore, were hit harder by the Covid-19. The citizens didn’t know where to begin, the only way out was to start yelling at the government for help not knowing that their government is still in debt with the Chinese government. But, nevertheless, the government issued three stimulus checks to the people. Thanks to former President Donald Trump who put people and small businesses first. 

One would think that three stimulus checks were enough for people, well it wasn’t. It in fact activated what I called the mentality of wanting free money while using covid-19 as the reason for wanting more money. The demand for needing more and more money on a monthly basis grew and the best thing the government could do was to fool the taxpayers by paying the Child Tax Credit in advance instead of waiting until the tax file time. Smart technique, I call it. The families have been happily collecting their Child Tax Credit advance payment without thinking that they are eating into their tax refund in advance. This is something hard for the taxpayers to understand right now because their government plays a smart game on them but will all surely understand in this upcoming tax season.

This Child Tax Credit advance payments that taxpayers have been collecting is going to affect the refund amount families with children usually expect or supposed to get during the tax file season. The government is way smarter than you “taxpayer” and knows what is in the cup. Instead of giving you free money like what other governments in developed countries have been doing for their citizens, the U.S. government decided to pay you your tax refund in advance to make you feel that your government cares about you. For sure the government cares about you but the bottom line is that you are not going to be super happy in the upcoming tax season. But don’t worry if you live in Vermont, Peter Deng Tax Service has already figured out everything for you and is ready to get you your big refund as usual.
