How much could I get back?

I did self employment (odd jobs) this year and earned 7grand. I have other unearned income but I am not claiming it. I have a child and was in school. Anyone know if that is going to get me anything back in tax refund?

I meet with my tax person next week but wanted to know now.

  • Rather than pay someone, based on your income, you should be able to get free tax return preparation through the IRS. Call the IRS 1-800-829-1040 - Hours of Operation: Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. your local time (Alaska & Hawaii follow Pacific Time).

  • there's a lot more than that information that would be needed for anyone to estimate how much you're getting back. Go to a calculator on H/R Block and put in the info and you'll get an approximate amount.

  • you'll get some, but a whole lot. You'll most likely get earned income credit.
