Single people entitled to state tax rebate, too

I agree 100 percent with the letter titled, “Tax rebate is unfair to those without kids.” I, too, am a single person with no kids trying to make a decent living in New York State. I feel as if I am being discriminated against because I am in the lowest tax bracket. I also believe that this practice is illegal and that single people without dependents should qualify for some sort of tax rebate as well as those individuals who choose to have children. I am issued a “refund” from the federal and state taxes that are taken out of every paycheck that would be laughable if not truly pathetic.

This discriminatory practice is a wake-up call to state legislators. All tax-paying, law-abiding, dependent-less New York State citizens should be included in receiving a tax rebate, and not excluded for their choices.
