How much money are you getting back this year?

I am so glad that I am done with my taxes. We have two kiddos and we are getting back $5,100. I just wish we could spend that money on a vacation or something fun. But we need to catch up on bills. So how much are the rest of you getting back? Please feel free to answer Anon.

  • We will not be getting any money back this year. I just hope we don't have to pay in-we paid in more than our fair share throughout the year.
    I can't afford to work anymore LOL!

  • We'll get around $10,000 because we get an adoption credit on our taxes.

  • I am getting 2,500 back. I would have owned but since my husband and I are both full-time students I was able to get a lot of credit on my taxes so it helped!

  • You should adjust your exemptions so you will have that money during the year when you really need it, instead of giving it to the government as an interest free loan!

  • 7K! So much more than last year's! I was very surprised we didnt have to pay back the stimulus or that our refundd was reduced b/c of it. In fact, we got an extra $600 for our newborn!
