Gobsmacked! WHOW !I'm married with 4 kids. We both struggle to maintain good jobs and pay the bills. It seems now we are barely better off than if we both stop working entirely! Cutting family Tax Benefit A to our family will result in over a $15,000 cut after tax each year! Seriously thinking about joining the many people enjoying life with their kids not working!
