How can this happen? Very weird.

No, not on any PA.

Have 1 dependant.

Filing married.

Made $42k, paid $4.92 in Fed. taxes.

Claimed 5 exemptions.

Getting EIC.

I'm a SAHM, DH is military, he was deployed for half of 2012.


I forgot to add, we did a PCS, and that was taxed at 95%, so about $1000 is coming back to us on the tax refund. Maybe that's why it's $4750 and not lower?

I only paid .94 in fed taxes and I'm getting 7,655 back. The only PA we get is Medicaid for the kids because neither of our jobs offer medical insurance.

See, I don't get this at all!?

How many numbers of exemptions did you file?

I plugged in 5 for the whole year.  I think I should lower it?

How many kids you have makes a big difference.

EIC and Child Tax Credits.

Durp.

We paid $5500 federal, we get $0 back.  That includes the $2000 Credit for my 2 kids, and a $2500 deduction from income for student loans.
