Ever since my wife died, I haven't been able to pay the rent. My job at Subway isn't cutting it anymore and the only place my son Johnny and I can live is my car! Johnny has had to quit soccer and I don't have time to go bird watching anymore! with johnny turning 8 and me getting close to 33, I don't know how long we can keep this up.
What is it son?
Hey dad! I found something that could help us get a place to live
I don't know son, I don't like taking handouts
Its called the earned income tax credit and it can help us get back on our feet until we are financially secure
the money comes from the government, it's only offered to low income families, and its only temporary. c'mon dad we need this
You know what son, you're right, i'll check the website!
Earned income tax credit
thanks to the earned income tax credit, I now have a steady job and I am back on my feet!
We can finally live with an actual roof over our heads now!! We are so grateful!
