This series of Financial Freedom Friday's was inspired by quote that led to a debate.  

"The main cause of poverty or financial struggle is fear and ignorance, not the economy or the government or the rich." Robert Kiyosaki

Income tax season is still among us, the deadline to file is April 15th for individuals. Businesses had to file by March 15th.  Business taxes must be done before personal taxes can be completed.  As the profit or loss from the business is absorbed by the personal taxes.

Tax time is a strange time in the ghettos of Chicago and other low income areas.  People are dressed up outside of tax preparation offices enticing people to come in and file their taxes.  Not only do they want you to file, they want you to file early and get a RAPID REFUND.  The rapid refund is apart of 'The Poverty Business' "John T. Hewitt, a pioneer in the tax-software industry, recognized the opportunity.  The founder of Jackson Hewitt Tax Service Inc.  (JTX) says that his company grew in the 1980s, "we focused on the low-hanging fruit: the less affluent people who wanted their money quick."

People in low income, impoverished areas pay hundreds of dollars out of their income tax refund to receive their money within 24 hours.  The simple fact, they can't wait 10 days for their refund, they turn their lack of patience into PROFITS for companies like Jackson Hewitt to the tune of BILLIONS 1,000,000,000.00 of dollars. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

This is a great example of Fear + Ignorance = Poverty.  

One shouldn't even be excited about receiving an income tax refund, we should owe the government money at the end of the year.  We will save that for Part 3, stay tuned!

There are 267 days left in this year, make them count!!!!!!
