My husband and I have been a small business electrical contractor for over 30+ years. And we "normally" end up owing the Federal Government on April 15, thousand of dollars-- which we pay each and every year. This is the first time EVER-- and I almost fell out of my chair-- when my CPA told me that the Federal government would be mailing us a check for approx. $1000.00 even though we didn't pay a cent in federal income tax this year! So all I can say is--very regretfully-- is THANK YOU--and I truly hope that this $1000.00 does end up on my grandson's or grandaughters credit card bill--that this government is more than likely borrowing to pay us in something called -- "earned income credit". Because we did earn a little only less than 1/2 of what we normally do. I imagine since the construction industry is currently at 30% unemployment in this country--there are probably millions more like us. SO A MEGA THANK YOU GOES OUT TO ALL OF YOU STILL WORKING--TAX-PAYING CITIZENS.
