Why does the IRS tax people living below Federal Poverty Levels? Insane immoral tax structure?


Single, no dependents = Less than $9,225 pays 10 percent of taxable income (2017) FPL = $11,880 (2016). ETIC not available to a single, no dependents. Why are people living below FPL being taxed at all? I would think that a SPNK below FPL should have 0% IRS tax (other than UI & SS that is part of FICA). IRS audit $10/hr single Mom/2 kids because 'nobody can live in Seattle like that for less than$36k - irs-goes-after-mothe
