Big Deal $10, that was the response I got from more than one person I spoke with about the new child tax credit. They lamented how it wasn’t very much money, and why should they be bothered getting the tax removed at the source (and just wait for it as a nice rebate in March of next year). If you agree with that, I’d like to point out:
- To me with 4 kids it is actually $40 so per pay cheque, which I view as significant, maybe I am funny that way.
- Why do you want to loan the government more money (at 0% interest)? If you want to do that just put the money in your chequing account.
- If you think $10 is no big deal, send me $10 every two weeks, I’ll figure out what to do with it.
It’s always interesting to see how folks are so intense about saving hundreds of dollars in a few areas, but saving $10 in a lot of places, just doesn’t interest them? I can’t be bothered to get an extra couple of bucks? The amount of work I had to do was fill in a form and e-mail it to my HR group, and that was it. Interesting how people value money.
