I have foodstamps and wouldn't need them if...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

They didn't take so much out of DH's check each week....We are a family of 5 and get 250 a month in food stamps, however I figured out last night if the IRS did not take out roughly 462.00 a month from DH's paycheck we would do just find and not need any help!!!

Sounds like you need to adjust his withholdings.

So adjust you exemptions so they take less. You'll just get a smaller refund at the end of the year. We adjusted DH's exemptions (The IRS has a calculator for this) and are keeping $175/month more of his pay. :-)

I wish I only had that little taken out. I get over about a grand to $1500 taken out ever month. It blows.

 Well, we all have to pay taxes in order to support the entitlement programs such as FS, and to pay for other important services

 With insurance and every thing we have $1023/month coming out so yeah we wouldn't need any help if we didn't have that coming out a month

 Such is life. I am not even eligible for foodstamps and am a single mother with a not so great job...  Oh well.
