    Do we really have to go through how this fictitious person would pay that during the year in withholding, then after any refund of overpayment they apply the EIC and get back everything plus?

    Come on man, you can do better.

    Is that the person's gross, or net income? Does that person have any dependents? Any deductions and/or credits?

    Here is a CP from the post you quoted for ya.

    A single person earning $18,000 per year.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
