Lets say you have a married couple with one child. Dad works as much as he can and is pulling in 30K a year while mom is in school.
That family will likely pull in a 6K + Refund or more.
That's no reason to be bitter at them.
Depends on where you are. If you are paying in a bunch in tax, why should they get a huge break when you don't? That's why people are bitter.
Also I've seen returns that worthless ****ers make 14000 at some pile of shit job, have a kid, live with the parents and just be ****ing worthless altogether. IIRC they had <500 withheld and are due a refund of 5500. That's what pisses me off more than anything.
