f1807e5e5a66337bef2713cd47e7c166dba3a235.doc Dartmouth 2K9 Ashvin and Tristan 2/19 T – In the United States A. Interpretation – In the United States means the 50 States and the District of Columbia only . EIC ‘08 (Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service, Earned Income Credit, 2008. http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p596.pdf Publication 596 Cat. No. 15173A) Your home (and your spouse’s, if filing a joint return) must have been in the United States for more than half the year. If it was not, put “No” next to line 64a (Form 1040), line 40a (Form 1040A), or line 8a (Form 1040EZ). United States. This means the 50 states and the District of Columbia. It does not include Puerto Rico or U.S. possessions such as Guam. B. Violation – the aff is directed towards Puerto Rico which is not in the United States according to their solvency advocate. C. This is a voting issue: i. Bad for debate – They make it impossible to debate about the merits of the plan because it cannot be directed towards the people the plan is trying to solve for. Their solvency mechanism doesn’t allow for eligibility of Puerto Rican citizens meaning they make for bad debates that would never happen in the real world or they can’t solve the plan. ii. Negative Burden – allowing the plan means researching for the unlimited number of cases outside of the resolution which is bad for competitive equity. Last printed 2

This tax credit should be funded through new budgetary spending. A Puerto Rican EITC solves the poverty problem better John Marino , City Editor of The San Juan Star, writes the weekly Puerto Rico Report column for the Puerto Rico Herald, 10/17/2003 , “The Case For A Boricua Earned Income Tax Credit”, Puerto Rico Herald, http://www.puertorico- herald.org/issues/2003/vol7n42/PRR0742-en.html If Puerto Rico were to enact such a scheme, it would be following in the footsteps of several states which, having saw the positive results of the federal EITC first instituted in the 1970s, sought to magnify its effects by bringing it to the state level.
