Because they have to change their lies to qualify for a mortgage, that might impact their fraudulent claim for EITC. That's a different issue.


"Whatever the tax issues are, I did my part by fully disclosing that they may no longer qualify for EITC, about which many expressed shock and dismay. Which is my point."

Peter also wrote: "There are no provisions in the tax code that bar a homeowner from claiming the EITC. I've prepared several returns where someone qualified for the EITC and had a mortgage."

And now you are changing your story, because you first wrote:

CC: {{{To keep this discussion on topic...when I originated home loans for low income people, I would have them sign a disclaimer indicating that they understood that by purchasing a home, they would no longer qualify for the EITC.}}}

So what exactly did you have them sign?

"They would no longer qualify" OR

"They may no longer longer"?

Regards, JAFO
