Robin D :

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
Did you have a specific question?

JACUSTOMER-8ayvho9r- :

why is that 6000 dollar profit from the invest. comp. hurt me so bad.

Robin D :

For one possibility, your refund may have been from Earned Income Credit

Robin D :

If that is so then teh profit on the investment would have wiped that out based on teh EIC rules for investment income

JACUSTOMER-8ayvho9r- :

i only made 19000 for the year an then the 6000 a total of 24000 for the year/

Robin D :

Did your refund that you showed before come from EIC?

Robin D :

Are you still with me?

JACUSTOMER-8ayvho9r- :

yes

Robin D :

Unfortunately, if you have more then $3300 in investment income you are not allowed EIC.

JACUSTOMER-8ayvho9r- :

my cpa said my eic is disallowed because of the intrest income.

Robin D :

That is exactly right

Robin D :

That is why your refund went away

JACUSTOMER-8ayvho9r- :

ok thanks

Robin D :
