  • i think you have to pay in, to get any money out. And if you don't work, your not paying in. But i'm not an expert on this.

  • Are you married? Do you live with your baby's father? Someone can claim the baby on their taxes, but it has to be someone that has worked.

  • You can't file for a return on taxes if you haven't paid any taxes

  • Do you have an interest-earning bank account? Did you collect any kind of money from the state? Child support? If so, you would need to file a return...and don't mix up "return" with "refund." **grin**

    Call an accountant so you know what you really need to do. You can even call good old H&R Block.

  • You have to claim wages on your taxes ... if you didn't make any money, you don't have any wages ... but if you are married, your husband can claim your child. Or if you are living with a significant other, who is the baby's father, and he works, he can claim the baby too.

  • if you are collected from welfare or programs like that and you do not have anyone living with you that can claim head of household (baby's father, your parents etc) then yes you can get taxes back.
