Don't forget they get tax returns with earned income credit no less, social security and more

Maybe in CA. In many states, there are no conjugal visits. Can you back up your information about the tax returns?
The part about the earned income tax credit is also untrue.

Quote:
Inmate's income. Amounts received for work performed while an inmate in a penal institution are not earned income for the earned income credit. This includes amounts received for work performed while in a work release program or while in a halfway house.

The thing about prison income is we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Do we really want to release felons into society with no money, no jobs and no homes and expect them not to reoffend? Even if they don't reoffend, they'll go on public assistance so what's the point?
That's what I thought, sorry the quotes didn't work. Inmates can't collect social security either (although I'm not sure if their dependents can) .
