How many kids do you have? We got back close to 6K last year when DH made around that much. We have one child.

I made 17000 and with 2 kids I'm getting back 9700. So that's probably right.

This is what gets me no one asks about this money. not fs, medicaid, wic or heap! as long as its not in the bank its like it does not exist. we are being very smart with our money because we have to be to live where we live and take care of our kids but i know so many aren't.

IDK...I would assume that how much you get back on your taxes is what you actually paid ├Čn. I think HR block would take a second look for free.

Did your dh claim zero and had way too much taxes taken out throughout last year?

with everything we get we live off over  50000 a year! (this is just a guess of everything added up)

but thats what it cost so everything is all messed up not just the way taxes are done its a bigger picture then that
