I am not asking....

anyone to tell me how much I will get back in taxes, I know that nobody knows that. But my question is I am a single mother (first year) claiming the baby and myself. I made about 17000 in 2008. Anybody in this similar situation, this year or any previous, and what did you get back?

Answer Question

  • umm did you not just ask the question you said you weren't going to ask. your asking what they got back so you have an estimation of what you will get back lol
