I never have any luck trying to figure out either: the max amount Gross you can make in a year and still get ALL of your Federal Taxes paid, back (like isnt this the "poverty level or something? I hear its $10k, I hear its $27k...) a place to figure out if you made X dollars you will get Y back Are there places for this cuz im SOL when it comes to Googling and searching. I just want to know what is the cut off point for a full refund. I paid $800 approx in 2005 and how much am I getting back dammit!!!!?
